We may only be in March and this may only be a game from the Turkish third division but no one in the Football Transfer Tavern who has seen the video of this sublime volley can deny that it is a clear candidate for Goal of The Season.
Whilst normally we may expect to see players such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi or Radamel Falcao, not to mention Neymar on the shortlist for any brilliant piece of skill or goal-of-the-season strikes, this particular effort is not to be overlooked in its own right.
Football fans will be eternally grateful that the referee allowed advantage to be played after an initial foul. The goal that followed represents one of the finest volleys we at the tavern have seen in a while. As one of our punters quips, it even has the potential to make Zlatan Ibrahimovic jealous!
The goal actually came in a game between Korhan Ozturk (Altay) and Anadolu Selçukluspor and let’s face it, we can forgive you for not knowing who either of those teams are given that most of us don’t either.
We are used to seeing some fairly decent goals here at the tavern and Gareth Bale has given us more than a couple of screamers this season but we think this one is up there with the pick of the bunch. Whilst it may not make the Puskas list and come to Fifa’s attention, it certainly has ours.
Do you think its as good as we do?
