“Look, I know you’re injured, but I’m gonna be right back. Got a goal to score for us.”
Maccabi Petah Tikva forward Habib Habibou scored what can only be described as an unprecedented goal — at least in terms of being captured on video — Israel this weekend.

Habibou, 31, and his club were locked in scoreless tussle with Maccabi Netanya on Saturday when one of his teammates was injured in the box.
The CAR striker, formerly of Zulte Waregem and Royal Charleroi, was taking care of said teammate when he spotted an 87th minute spilled rebound.
What was he gonna do, really, other than dart onto the loose ball, score the match-winner, and then return to his ailing mate?
Petah Tikva won 1-0.
