Lyon’s Clement Grenier scores no-look volley against Real Madrid

Do preseason goals count when we tally up FIFA goal of the year candidates? Because this one needs to make the list.

Olympique Lyon's Clement Grenier scored this golazo in Wednesday's friendly against Real Madrid without even looking at the net. The 22-year old French international, who scored seven Ligue 1 goals last season for Lyon, struck home a cross from Alexandre Lacazette with the inside of his right foot, while cheekily looking the other way. Showboating at its finest!

The only thing cooler than the goal is his casual celebration. We have a feeling if this was in a Champions League match, everyone - the media included - would be going crazy over this.  Alas, that’s the preseason for you.
