The goal Manchester united player Odion Ighalo scored in the Europa League at the Linzer Stadion on Thusday has been tagged as one of the best.
According to BBC the Nigerian scored a sensational goal for Manchester United at LASK in the Europa League.
On how the goal was scored, Ighalo, 30, Juggled the ball from right foot to left, the 30-year-old then cannoned a left-footed shot in off the crossbar from 18 yards.
During the match the most unusual thing occurred: the fans were not in the stadium to cheer the players and hail Ighao for the spectacular goal because of the new law that says football matches should be played without people present in the stadium.
The crowd attendance was just reduced to 500, due to the coronavirus restriction of crowd in the stadium.
Ighalo’s goal also attracted comments from former Manchester United players, Paul Ince and Owen Hagreaves.
On BT Sport, former United midfielder Paul Ince, suggested otherwise, likening it to the sort of potshot seen at training grounds when the pressure is off.
“Maybe he doesn’t do it in front of a full house,” said Ince. “It reminds me of one of those that you do at training. Maybe I’m doing a disservice to him.”
However, fellow studio guest Owen Hargreaves, was a touch more complimentary.
“It is like Tony Yeboah, it’s a thing of beauty,” he said, referencing the Ghanaian’s famous in-off-the-crossbar volley for Leeds in 1995.
“It is one of the best goals he has ever scored.”
