Mitchell Duke produced an excellent header to put Australia in front against Tunisia

‘Take a bow!’: Fans go wild as Australia’s Mitchell Duke scores stunning backwards header against Tunisia… with supporters comparing it to Javier Hernandez’s improvised effort for Man United in 2011

Fans have been left stunned by Mitchell Duke’s remarkable header to give Australia the lead in their World Cup match against Tunisia.

With the ball a fraction behind the striker, he managed to somehow produce a backwards header that flew into the bottom corner of the net.

His goal has been compared to a similar effort that Javier Hernandez scored for Manchester United against Stoke in 2011, with fans calling for Duke to ‘take a bow’ after his unbelievable header.

‘What a beautiful string of play. Sensational goal. Mitch Duke take a bow,’ one fan wrote on Twitter.

‘That’s an absolutely brilliant finish from Duke,’ a fellow supporter agreed.

‘Chicharito header,’ another fan added, using Hernandez’s nickname to refer to how Duke’s goal was similar to his.

Duke currently plays his club football in Japan for J2 League outfit Fagiano Okayama. 

He is featuring at his first World Cup, and his header was his first goal on the biggest stage.

One fan cheekily pointed out that he now has an edge over Barcelona and Poland forward Robert Lewandowski when it comes to finding the net in World Cups.

‘Mitch Duke, more World Cup goals than Robert Lewandowski,’ they posted on social media.
