Carles Puyol Scores Spectacular Backwards Header [Video]

Barcelona FC captain and veteran defender Carles Puyol doesn’t score that often, but when he does it’s usually with his head.

During Wednesday’s Cope del Rey match between heavyweight Barcelona FC and spanish side Malaga, Puyol scored a brilliant (and somewhat lucky) header in the 30th minute to give Barca the 2-1 lead. Puyol redirected a cross from teammate Thiago off the back of his head from about 15 yards out that hit the far post before bouncing in, leaving Malaga goalkeeper Kameni completely hopeless.

Here is another video of the goal with some more angles of the incredible goal:
