Memphis Depay seems to have settled into life in France.

The former Manchester United star joined Olympique Lyonnais in January, after failing to impress at Old Trafford under Jose Mourinho. He signed a four-and-a-half year deal with the French club with an option for him to return to Old Trafford.

Depay has scored five goals already for Lyon, including two on Sunday against Toulouse, in the 4-0 Ligue 1 win. It was his second goal though that will live in the memory.

The Dutch midfielder scored from the halfway line, lobbing goalkeeper Alban Lafont to put the cherry on a massive win for his side. Lyon maintained their fourth spot in the league, and are now 13 points behind Nice.

You can wrap up the French Goal of the Season competition now. That goal will not be beaten.
