If you weren't watching the Spanish third tier over the weekend, then you missed a goal of the season contender.

Javi Gómez of UD Socuéllamos, based in the Castilla-La Mancha area of Spain, shot to internet fame thanks to scoring a rather spectacular bicycle kick. 

The game against Toledo, a derby, took place in the Paquito Giménez stadium, and with just a few short games to go before the end of the season, the playoffs were within reach for the home side.

The deadlock between the two teams was only broken in the 70th minute, but it was well worth the wait. In truly spectacular fashion, Gómez grabbed his 14th goal of the season as he audaciously attempted a bicycle kick, which flew past Toni Doblas in the Toledo goal. 

The game ended 1-0, with the moment of magic being the only thing that separated the two sides.
