Kostas Mitroglou unleashed his inner Steve McManaman and Paolo Di Canio on Tuesday.

The Greek international striker (remember him, Fulham fans!?) spanked in a beautiful flying scissor kick as Greece beat Gibraltar in 2018 World Cup qualifying.

Have a look at the video below to see Mitroglou unleash a wonderful effort from the edge of the box as the Benfica striker scored two goals in a week for Greece. He also scored 25 goals in 45 appearances for Benfica last season on loan from Fulham before making his switch permanent this summer.

Once upon a time this man was Fulham’s club-record signing but he only played three times for the Cottagers and failed to score as they were relegated from the Premier League.

Anyway, here’s the mind-boggling goal. You beauty.
