The World Cup’s going to have a hard time topping this goal.

Heather Zhang was attending the pre-World Cup soccer match between England and Peru in the U.K.’s Wembley Stadium on May 30 when her seat mate, Blair Valentine, decided to liven up the proceedings with some paper planes.

What happened next is probably more impressive than the actual match.

Valentine – who, it’s important to note, was sitting in the farthest seat from the pitch – lobbed his plane toward the players, and the group watched as it sailed all the way down to eventually poke Peru’s Hansell Riojas on the head as he stood on the pitch.

Less importantly, England won the match 3-0.
