In a near-impossible position, the German international managed to find a gap, control the ball on his chest and engineer space; all before producing an audacious overhead kick which left Lilies' keeper Christian Mathenia - and the watching world - in a state of awe.

It was a 17th goal of the season for the 26-year-old, who, along with Robert Lewandowski, is scoring goals for fun at present. Following the final whistle, Müller discussed the acrobatic effort from his perspective as well as the welcome return of Franck Ribery.
