WATCH: Russian Second Division player scores insane backflip penalty

Footballer successfully scores incredible backflip penalty in Russian Second Division game

There are many different players who've made penalties more glamorous than they were originally intended - Andrea Pirlo chipping his spot-kicks and skilful players like Neymar always finding new ways to capitalise on their fancy footwork - but the latest unique penalty is enough to blow the mind of any on-looking football fan.

In a game for Rubin Kazan's Under 21s team, Russian-Armenian Norik Avdalyan was given the golden opportunity to get his side on the scoresheet and made sure that he put off the goalkeeper enough to get the ball over the line. We've seen some incredible penalties before but this is beyond believe and needs more than one watch just to comprehend what happens, as Avdalyan ambitiously backflips to smash the ball into the top corner of the net. Rubin Kazan's twitter page posted the video, giving him plenty of well-deserved praise, and it looks likely for Norik Avdalyan to get call-up to the senior squad after scoring such a sensational goal.

Check out Norik Avdalyan's mind-blowing penalty below:
