Allan Saint-Maximin continues his impressive run in Saudi Arabia as he scored a stunner from outside of the box for Al-Ahli.

The Frenchman scored the third for the Saudi team as they beat Al-Taawoun and capped it up with a somersaulting celebration.

The former Newcastle player played alongside his former fellow Premier League counterparts Roberto Firmino and Riyad Mahrez.

Al-Ahli took the early lead in the match but goals from Joao Pedro Pereira dos Santos and Musa Barrow reduced the deficit.

Allan Saint-Maximin blasted an awesome shot in the second half from outside the box to give Al-Hilal the 3-2 victory.

Allan Saint-Maximin joined the Saudi Pro League club for a deal reported to be worth around £23million, though fans thought he was too young.

Recall we reported that the Saudi Pro League did a massive raid in the transfer market, especially the Premier League, Saint-Maximin was one of these players.

The former Newcastle star, 26, scored his first goal for Al-Ahli after making six appearances for his new club so far.

Aside from the aforementioned players and Saint-Maximin, former Chelsea keeper Edouard Mendy also started for Al-Ahli.

If not for the late goal by Saint-Maximin, Mendy would have been beating himself after failing to stop the two goals,

The Frenchman’s late strike saw his team clinch all three points in the Saudi Pro League.

In the match, Musa Barrow thought he had secured himself a brace when he hit the back of the net in stoppage time.

However, VAR ruled out the goal, which meant Al-Ahli hopes of challenging Al-Hilal and Al-Nassr for the title are still alive after massive summer spending.

Abdulbasit Hindi was sent off deep into stoppage time alongside midfielder Alvaro Medran – both teams were one man down.

Allan Saint-Maximin ensured his team sit in the third position in the Saudi Pro League, while Al-Taawoun are in fourth position.
