GIF: Villareal's Costa smashes home an absolutely magical volley against Deportivo

It seems almost unjust that golazos are worth the same as bog-standard "normal" goals.

Deportivo La Coruna came from behind to earn a 1-1 draw against Villareal in La Liga on Sunday. However, the away side's opener was so astoundingly awesome, it feels almost a travesty that it wasn't enough to win the game.

Jaume Costa fired Villareal into the lead with a absolutely beautiful strike. The left-back received the ball off balance from the edge of the box, chipped it to himself and rocketed in a volley.

His outside-the-boot lobbed effort was so mesmerising that the opposition defenders stood perplexed wondering what on Earth had they just witnessed. Check out the tremendous wondergoal below.
