Vine: Marcel Ndjeng scores incredible volley from next to the halfway line

German side Paderborn played Bolton in a pre-season friendly on Monday evening and just as the prophecy foretold he would, Marcel Ndjeng took his moment to shine by launching an astonishing 45 yard power volley past the goalkeeper.
Released by Hertha Berlin at the end of the 2014/15 campaign, 33 year old Ndjeng waited until his side had scored two goals before unleashing his secret weapon, absolutely thumping the ball through the helpless keeper from near the centre circle.
You could forgive Marcel Ndjeng for being a bit sad right now; knowing that at the age of 33 he will never, ever do anything better than this goal.
People tend to say the birth of their child was the greatest day of their life but, having no children of my own, I'm starting to have my suspicions that had they scored a 45 yard power volley this might not always be the case. Plus one of these scenarios is a lot more enjoyable to watch on an endless looping Vine than the other.
Wondergoals aside, Bolton's fortunes didn't get any better after the goal and they eventually managed to lose 4-1 to the 2. Bundesliga team.
