Video: Greece's Beckham-esque goal

Greece midfielder Iaonnis Maniatis has turned himself into a viral sensation with a goal from his own half downing the Caltex Socceroos in Melbourne on Tuesday night.

With the Socceroos turning over possession after going on the attack Adam Federici was caught off his line in his sweeper-keeper role and the 29-year-old needed no invitation to have a crack at goal.

See the audacious strike, which has drawn comparisons with David Beckham's famous long range effort, in the video player above.
