A perfectly shot into the top corner

It only took him 14 minutes to be decisive and prove his talent. On a pass from Kevin Volland, Aleksandr Golovin was found on the left of the area. He then cut inside, getting the ball on to his right foot before he hit a sublime curling shot into the opposite corner to beat Yahia Fofana and double the lead.

He has already attempted this type of goal this season, and he has the qualities to score in this way. I hope that over time, he will score a lot of goals like that because he has the qualities to do so!
