HAIFA, Israel (WTVR) - Check out this bizarre goal in a soccer friendly. Maccabi Haifa took on Dynamo Kiev in a friendly, and the match was played in wild windy weather conditions that produced one of the strangest goals ever seen.

Haifa goalie Assaf Mendes took a goal kick that traveled forward into a powerful gust of wind, before incredibly coming back past the stunned keeper. Dynamo Kiev was able to tack on four other goals and win 5-0.
