Real Madrid claimed a 3-0 victory against Cadiz on Sunday but there was a bizarre moment during the match, with Joselu remarkably deciding not to tap the ball into an empty net.
The Spanish striker's career came full circle in the summer, as he returned to Real Madrid following tough spells with Stoke and Newcastle.
It was a shock move, but the 33-year-old, who joined from Espanyol has enjoyed a fine start at his new club, scoring five times in 14 league appearances this season.
He could have had another on Sunday against Cadiz too, but remarkably decided not to smash the ball into the back of an empty net.
It came as Rodrygo had driven through to go one-on-one with Cadiz goalkeeper Conan Ledesma.
