Today marks the 37th Birthday for Ligue 1 legend Dimitri Payet, currently playing for Brazilian side Vasco da Gama. We take a look at some of the best goals from the former Saint-Étienne, Lille, and Olympique de Marseille man.

5. Chip against Metz 2014-2015

We start things off casually with a nonchalant chip from Payet in the 92nd minute against FC Metz back in the 2014-15 season, shortly before his move to the Premier League and West Ham United.

 

4. Freekick vs Dijon 2016-2017

It was always the trademark of Payet's game, having scored plenty of freekicks in his time, but this one against Dijon in the 2016-2017 season is surely the pick of the bunch, coming shortly after his return to the club from his stint in England.

3. Volley vs Guingamp 2018-2019

This one is as audacious as it gets from the Frenchman in the 2018-2019 season. The ball is cleared away from the Guingamp box and falls perfectly for Payet to pull off a perfect long-range volley.

 

2. Long range strike vs Toulouse 2019-2020

Everything about Payet's strike against Toulouse in 2019-2020 was perfect, some nice build-up and a curled strike which whistled into the top left corner.

1. Thunderbolt vs PAOK 2021-2022 Europa Conference League

If it was good enough to be nominated for the 2022 Puskas, it sure is good enough for us! It reminds you of one of those 'what if' scenarios when playing FIFA - but Payet pulled it off. The corner comes directly to the feet of Payet who unleashes one of the deadliest half-volleys of all time into the top right corner…
