In an Italian Serie A soccer match, Genoa striker Rodrigo Palacio celebrated his 30th birthday with an ridiculous backheel goal off a corner kick to open the scoring against Lazio.

Palacio was running away from the goal when he used a backheel kick to float the ball behind him and over the goalkeeper's head into the net. Genoa won the match 3-2.
