Video: He may have missed the penalty, but how about the overhead kick in the follow up?

Glenn van der Linden may be a name you aren’t overly familiar with, but he scored one of the finest goals you will ever see, despite missing the actual spot kick.

Belgian Second Division leaders Mouscron-Péruwelz beat Hoogstraten 2-1, thanks in no small part to van der Linden and one of the most incredible penalties you are ever likely to see.

The attempted tackle after the save leaves a lot to be desired and the goalkeeper didn’t exactly cover himself in glory either, but without doubt it was the best penalty miss and follow up we have laid eyes on.
