A long run to magnificent goal in Qatar

[VIDEO PICK: Golazo] Khalfan Ibrahim of Qatari club Al Sadd dribbled nearly three-quarters of the field and beat more than half of Al Rayyan's players in the Crown Prince's Cup to score what a top candidate for best goal of 2013.

The 25-year-old Khalfan was 2006 Asian Player of the Year and has been called "Maradona of Qatar" -- a nickname he lived up to in this strike that's reminiscent of the Argentine's famous 1986 World Cup goal against England.

To score the third goal of a 3-1 win, Khalfan takes control of the ball in the middle of his own half before slaloming and juking his way to the other end, leaving five Al Rayyan players in his wake before stroking it past the keeper.
