Mor Diouf may never hold a job with the telephone company, but the Supersport United defender is clearly a long-distance operator.
In the waning minutes of a scoreless match against Mamelodi Sundowns in theSouth African Premier League on Sunday, Diouf scored a stunning game-winning goal from his own defensive half of the field.
Taking possession deep in his own half in the 88th minute, the Senegalese defender dribbled toward the halfway line but noticed the opposing goalkeeper out of position.
He let loose a long-distance 70-yard effort that found the back of the net and gave his team the 1-0 win.
“It’s something that wins games as tight as this, SuperSport United manager Gavin Hunt said, via The Daily Mail. “Once he hit it, I knew it was a goal because I saw where the goalkeeper was and he hit it sweetly.”
