Lithuania’s Rolandas Baravykas scores scissor-kick consolation



Lithuania face an uphill task to avoid relegation in the Nations League, but they produced one of the goals of the rounds in their 4-1 home defeat by Montenegro.

Edgaras Jankauskas’ men have lost all four of their games so far in Group C4 and are six points adrift of Romania with three matches remaining.

With their chances of survival taking another big dent on Sunday night thanks to a double from Montenegro striker Stefan Mugosa and further strikes from Boris Kopitovic and Darko Zoric, the home crowd were in desperate need of something to lift their spirits.

Step forward Rolandas Baravykas. Despite it only being a consolation goal, his beautiful scissor-kick was all the more remarkable given it was scored by a defender.
