Depay scores from halfway line
Former Manchester United outcast Memphis Depay rejoiced in his contender for goal of the season as the Dutchman scored twice to seal Lyon's 4-0 thrashing of Toulouse in Ligue 1.
Christophe Jallet and Maxwel Cornet put Lyon in control at Parc OL on Sunday before Depay stole the show with a second-half brace, the latter of those coming from just inside the Toulouse half.
Depay picked up the ball in the centre circle and spun round a defender before lofting the ball over the head of Toulouse goalkeeper Alban Lafont for his fourth goal in three matches.
"It's incredible for me to have scored a goal like that. I had tried one like that a few years ago and it hit the bar," said Depay.
The 23-year-old, who joined Lyon from United in January after rarely featuring under Jose Mourinho, admitted picking up on Lafont's tendency to drift from his goal earlier in the game.
"I saw the goalkeeper was playing off his line in the first half and I kept that in the back of my mind," Depay told Canal+.
“Then I had the ball and I turned around and shot. I didn't even see the ball go in, but I just heard everyone go crazy."
