Watch: Mothiba Scores Van Persie-esque Header In France
Lebo Mothiba Scored His First Goal Of The Season This Weekend
South African youngster, Lebo Mothiba, scored a long-range header in France this weekend that has been likened to Robin van Persie's famous one for Holland.
The 21-year-old scored the only goal of the game as Valenciennes beat Châteauroux to get their first win of the campaign, with the South African getting up and running for the season with a goal in the second match of the season.
See his goal below:
It didn't take fans long to see the similarities between Mothiba's goal and RvP's against Spain in the 2014 World Cup, with one fan even going as far to change his name on Twitter to Lebo van Mothiba.
]The South African will spend the entire season on loan with Valenciennes from his parent club, Lille, and he will be eager to find more goals as the year goes on in an attempt to impress his current employers and those watching from his contracted club.
