Watch: Memphis Depay Scores Barely Believable 50-Yard Wondergoal
By Mikey Traynor

One thing you can say about Memphis Depay.. He certainly doesn't lack confidence.

After failing to live up to his promise at Manchester United, Memphis Depay moved to Lyon in the hopes of rebuilding his reputation around Europe and things had been going quite well for him early in his Ligue 1 career.

He's been contributing with goals and assists since his January move, but his goal in Sunday's 4-0 win over Toulouse will grab the attention of football fans around the continent.

After latching onto a clearance just inside the half-way line, Memphis showed some nice footwork before unleashing an incredible lob from all of 50 yards.

Absolutely stunning. The alternative angles are even more insane.

It's hard to question whether or not he meant it, as is the natural reaction when such a bamboozling goal flies in, because what the hell else would he be doing?

The ball actually rises out of view, such was the trajectory, and highly rated young goalkeeper Alban Lafont didn't appear to be too far off of his line in the Toulouse goal.

Incredible stuff from Memphis Depay.
