Northern Ireland fans were sent into dreamland at the Commerzbank-Arena when the visitors went ahead against Germany after just seven minutes.

Even more shocking would have been the source of the goalscorer: defender Michael Smith - and what a goal it was too!

With George Saville's cross only being partially cleared to the edge of the box, the onrushing Smith decided to chance his arm and have a crack at goal... and it paid off!

It's Smith's first international goal and you can guarantee he won't forget this one in a hurry: what a strike!

Check it out below!
