It happened this weekend during a soccer match between Spanish teams the Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid.

The Real Madrid was trailing 2-1 when player Cristiano Ronaldo used a wacky backheel kick to tie up the game.

The goalkeeper couldn't do anything but watch in disbelief as the ball sailed in, and the crowd went wild. Click on the video above to see it yourself.

It was the 50th goal this season for Ronaldo.

The game ended in a tie.
