Is this bizarre back-heel-karate-kick goal a fluke or not?

Because we really can’t tell.

WE CAME ACROSS this goal from Rapid Vienna’s Christopher Trimmel this morning and, even after watching it eight or nine times, we’re still not sure whether he meant it or not.

The evidence for is as follows:

1) Trimmel has perfectly timed his leap.
2) He makes clean contact with the football.
3) He generates a lot of power behind it.

The evidence against:

1) Why would anyone try to back-heel-karate-kick a football?

What do you think?
