Arnaud Kalimuendo grabbed the headlines with a superb backheel goal for France at the European Under-21 Championships.
The Rennes striker managed the most sublime effort by sending the ball with his right foot into the bottom corner of the net.
Despite Marco Carnesecchi’s best efforts to keep him out, the perfect effort was enough to put France 1-0 up against Italy.
As well as the 21-year-old’s incredible effort, Pierre Kalulu also deserves credit for the superb cross that eluded defenders and set the pace for Kalimuendo’s memorable strike.
That effort was followed by Bradley Barcola’s effort as France ran out the winners 2-1.
While the France squad is blessed with some exciting young talent, Kalimuendo might not have been the name many football fans expected to grab headlines.
Kephren Thuram is arguably the biggest star in the French side, with Liverpool heavily linked with a move for the Nice midfielder.
The Reds are also linked with Borussia Mönchengladbach midfielder Manu Kone, who shone alongside Thuram for France.
Former Nottingham Forest loanee Loic Bade started in central defense for Les Bleus, while Crystal Palace star Michael Olise appeared as a second-half substitute alongside Lyon teenager Rayan Cherki.
