WATCH: Djibril Cisse nuts his volley off 50 yard pass from Romaric


Djibril Cisse is alive and well, plying his trade for Bastia in Ligue 1 and on Saturday the flamboyant Frenchman made headlines with an astonishing volley to help his side draw 2-2 with Sochaux.

As good as the goal was, however, the assist was arguably better. The Bastia defense cleared a 68th minute ball and Ivorian midfielder, Romaric, collected it, took two quick touches, glanced up, saw Cisse break free and unleashed a 50 yard ball into the Sochaux box.

Timing his run perfectly, Cisse spanked a right-footed volley into the far post from 15 yards out. Straight butter.
