    Fans at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Chennai were in for a blast on 21st October, 2014 when French defender Bernard Mendy scored a magnificent bicycle kick for Chennaiyin FC on the 63rd minute. This acrobatic feat came against southern rivals Kerala Blasters FC.

    The goal helped Chennaiyin win that match 2-1, with the score being opened for the home team by marquee man Elano. Celebrities, commentators, the crowds – nobody could hold on to their seats.This achievement would never be replicated for the rest of the League.

    Bicycle kicks are a rare sight. As a footballer, you need to have a strict exercise regimen and utmost precision to pull off such a feat. And the most important quality – supreme reflexes! With this goal, Mendy joins the Zlatans and Sinclairs and Rooneys of the world! Check out the video to relive the awe-inducing moment.
