A previously unknown footballer has become an overnight sensation by scoring a goal from inside his own half - using his head.

Jone Samuelsen, 27, scored in the dying minutes of the game to seal a vital win for Odd Grenland, in a 3-1 victory over Tromso IL with a 60-yard header.

David Beckham famously scored from inside his own half, lobbing Wimbledon keeper Neil Sullivan. The goal - voted goal of the decade - shot Beckham to stardom, perhaps this goal will do the same for Samuelsen.

The video has been watched thousands of times, has gone viral and was even trending on Twitter in the UK this morning.
