It was in 2012 when Terek Grozny were playing against Kuban in the Russian Premier League.

The defender struck the ball from the middle of the field, to see it rolling directly into the top corner of the net. It was a moment of brilliance from Jiranek that produced one of the best goals football fans could dream of witnessing.
