(CNN) Mehdi Taremi scored a truly spectacular overhead kick on Tuesday to become the first Iranian player to score in the Champions League quarterfinals. The Porto striker delivered his stunning effort in the final moments of his side's 1-0 win over Chelsea but it wasn't enough to overturn the 2-0 deficit from the first leg. Despite the goal counting for relatively nothing in the match, it will still live long in the memory. The 28-year-old lept into the air before firing his acrobatic effort into the far corner of the net, leaving Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy helpless. He wasn't even able to celebrate, with his team needing another goal in less than two minutes to force extra time. "We played a great game, we showed that we are a great team, but unfortunately my goal wasn't enough," Taremi said after the match.
