Nemanja Matic has had a brilliant season for Premier League leading Chelsea, adding as a brilliant defensive screen for Jose Mourinho's men who are six points clear.

Despite his excellent passing and tackling skills, one thing he is not know for is goals - he has only three for the Blues this season and has not scored in the Premier League since August.

But despite his small haul Matic proved in Portugal on Sunday night that he is capable of scoring goals; spectacular ones at that.

After former Chelsea defender Ricardo Carvalho had opened the scoring in Lisbon, Matic popped up at a corner to score a stunning overhead kick and make the Euro 2016 qualifier 1-1.

Unfortunately for Matic and Serbia, Fabio Coentrao scored just two minutes later and Portugal went on to win the game 2-1.
