WATCH: Papiss Cisse Scores Surreal Goal Which Reminds Us Of Legendary Mayo Connacht Final Goal
By Conor Neville Updated

It's 27 years since Jimmy Burke scored a goal in a Connacht final replay which left an indelible impression on all who saw it.

Mayo were leading a tense, high scoring game by a point and Jimmy's late goal put the seal on another provincial title win.

With little room to manoeuvre, Jimmy pulled out the old 'dummy fresh air kick followed by a kick while falling over' trick.

The ball nestled in the net. Jimmy almost fell face first into the goalpost but managed to avoid making full contact with it.

That was partly replicated at the weekend by Papiss Cisse who scored a goal in the Chinese Super League. He is, we understand, trooping out for middling team called Shandong Luneng Taisham and collecting an outrageous fortune for doing so.

He scored a highly unusual goal in his side's 4-1 defeat at the weekend. The fresh air dummy could yet become an invaluable part of an attacker's repertoire.
