Amateur footballer defies physics with free-kick that left ball in top corner

An amateur football has seemingly defied physics with a free-kick so sweet it left the ball hanging in the top corner.

The insane set-piece was posted on Instagram by ESPN which shows the taker arrowing an inch-perfect strike into the top right corner alongside the caption "perfect placement". At least 25-yards out from goal, the ball is positioned on the left-hand side of the penalty area, in a notoriously difficult spot for a shot on goal.

However, that didn't stop the set-piece specialist from arcing the ball into the top right corner with a worldie of a free-kick that stayed rooted in the stanchion.

The sensationally strike sent social media into meltdown with several fans commenting on the out-of-this-world goal. "Real definition of top bins," commented one supporter.

"Wow even Beckham couldn't wouldn't," replied another dazed fan. "I don’t even think a professional keeper is saving that," praised a third.

"This shot is damn near unsavable LOL," claimed a fourth. Whilst a fifth quipped: "Goal line technology needed ASAP."

Due to the ricochet inside the stanchion, it's unclear as to whether the ball fully crossed the line. Video footage shows it cannoning around in baffling fashion before bouncing down on the goal-line.

However, the on-field referee was clearly of the mind that it would be outrageous to rule out such a dazzling set-piece and blew the whistle to indicate play would resume from the centre circle – probably the correct call given the circumstances.
