While Yannick Carrasco’s cross into Fernando Torres looked anything but threatening, the former Spanish international did something quite extraordinary with his off-balance attempt.

Torres netted his fifth goal of the season in the first half of Sunday’s La Liga encounter against Celta Vigo after cleverly lobbing the ball over goalkeeper Sergio Alvarez from a near impossible angle.

Atletico was trailing early on after Celta took the lead in the fifth minute, but Torres’ response six minutes later got the Vicente Calderon rocking.
