Amazing Goal by Dragan Stojkovic - as Manager!!!
Dragan Stojkovic successfully made a beautiful long-range shot from his bench.
Former Serbian international Dragan Stojkovic, now the manager of Japanese powerhouse Nagoya Grampus, showed his great skill in the J-league match against Yokohama Marinos held at the Yokohama International stadium. At the end of the game a Marinos player was injured and the GK kicked the ball out of the line to halt the game. Stojkovic directly kicked the ball back and it found its way into the goal after a bounce. Although the audience applauded him, the referee sent him off for his? kick was the “protest against referring”.

Wow. I still cannot believe this is no fake. (Thanks Mutlu!)
