By virtue of the fact that Dimitri Payet has been at West Ham United since last summer, coaches and players alike must have seen their fair share of magic from the Frenchman during training sessions and whatnot.
But several of the Irons' staff were left astonished by the quality of the playmaker's free kick in France's 4-2 win over Russia in a friendly on Tuesday night.
Payet, no stranger to a golazo for the Hammers this season, found the net from what looked to be the guts of 30 yards at Stade de France - and Mark Noble, Aaron Cresswell and coach Edin Terzic paid their tribute to the star, who turned 29 today.

Meanwhile, former Hammers man Don Hutchinson seemed most impressed, posting an emoji-laden tweet which perfectly sums up how highly he rated the goal.

The East Londoners will hope that Payet can resume his remarkable form upon returning from international duty as West Ham chase Champions League qualification and an FA Cup this season.
