GIF: This 50-yard volley by Yoann Gourcuff might be the best disallowed goal ever

The referee who ruled this out has no heart, no heart at all…

Lyon beat Real Betis 1-0 tonight in the Europa League but the moment of the match was undoubtedly this stunning second-half effort by Yoann Gourcuff.

The ball fell to the French international just on halfway and he absolutely lashed a vicious curling volley over the keeper and into the net. It was a simply sensational strike.

Sadly, a foul by team-mate Bafetimbi Gomis was called just before Gourcuff struck, meaning his supreme skill counted for naught.

It’s a damn shame, but the GIFs are well worth checking out.
