The Most Incredible Goal from 85 Meters (Video)

Hördur Magnússon, an Icelandic soccer player playing with Levanger in Norway, sealed victory in the game in overtime. The opponents, Stabæk had a free kick and were desperate to score in the final seconds. All eleven players were on offence, including the goalie. Watch what happened when Magnússon got the ball by his own penalty area.

To what happened, watch a TV2 video here. Note that the video starts with a commercial in Norwegian, but it is worth the wait to see the goal. It is one of a kind.
