Remember when: Engelaar's crazy halfway goal against the Mariners

A giant man who left a big impression in a short time, Orlando Engelaar's entertaining Hyundai A-League stint will forever be defined by one goal.

The former Netherlands international joined the then-Melbourne Heart in January 2014 and enjoyed a prolific three months, netting five times in 12 appearances.

But his wonder strike against Central Coast Mariners in Round 24 is certain to live longest in the memory.

As possession broke for him in the middle of AAMI Park, Engelaar didn't hesitate to launch one of the competition's most spectacular goals from inside his own half.

His raking, first-time shot whistled off his left foot and over an unsuspecting Liam Reddy, whose attempts to race back were in vain.

Central Coast went on to win the match 2-1, but there is no mistaking who provided the unforgettable highlight.

Enjoy the goal all over again in the video above - plus another one of his cracking strikes!
