Watch: Papiss Cisse scores bizarre goal in China

Wednesday October 26th, 2016

Papiss Cisse is the author of some great goals, most notably his outside-of-the-foot curler from long distance against Chelsea while he played for Newcastle, but he may have gotten the benefit of the doubt on his latest finish.

Playing for Shandong Luneng in China in very rainy conditions, Cisse badly mis-hit a close-range strike with his left foot, only to somehow volley it home with his right.

The goal was of little consolation, as his side lost 4-1 against Shanghai SIPG, which had Brazilians Hulk and Elkeson combine for three goals before Cisse's awkward-yet-brilliant hit.
