Incredible goal in Israel as striker stops helping injured teammate to score match winner

Habib Habibou is one sneaky striker!

The 31-year-old Maccabi Petah Tikva striker scored a bizarre goal over the weekend to nab a win for his team against Maccabi Netanya in the Israeli Premier League.

As the former PSG player tended to an injured teammate who lay on the turf inside the penalty area, the play continued on the other side of the park.

But as the move progressed, the ball was eventually crossed in the direction of Habibou.

Without hesitation, the forward briefly suspended his medical duties, took a few quick steps towards the centre of the box and tapped home the match winner! He then returned to help his teammate, and helped him off the ground so he could celebrate the goal.

Simply incredible scenes.

His 87th minute finish securing a 1-0 victory that sent his side above Netanya and into sixth on the ladder.

Excellent opportunism from the once capped international for the Central African Republic.
