Just before Spain was busy being dispatched from their path along the impossible dream of winning the u19, u20 and u21 championships in the same summer, France was busy getting a lesson in late-game drama from Nigeria.
And then Gueida Fofana hit back with some drama and technique of his own, sending France on its way to a 3-2 victory in ET.
But perhaps even better than one of the best goals this summer is the fact he began celebrating almost as soon as the ball left his foot. A casually extraordinary goal and celebration all in one. This boy might be something.
