In the video posted on Reddit, Avdalyan takes the normal two-step run and uses the final step to lift himself up while letting the penalty fly past the helpless goalkeeper who could only watch, according to SPORTBIBLE.

According to the Daily Mail, Avdalyan scored a similar penalty for Rubin Kazan's Under-21 clash in 2018, and with his latest acrobatics, it is safe to say we should expect another back-flip penalty from him in 2026.
