The other goal of the year “Taison”

Woe to those who were five minutes late at Metalist Stadium on Thursday. They could see on the scoreboard that FC Metalist Kharkiv already beat Rosenborg BK, but that would be omitting part of reality. why the rest of the 34.235 spectators had that expression of disbelief on their faces?

Taison is the reason. The Brazilian striker had delighted them with this after a seemingly harmless cross from Fininho, a long ball from the left that crossed the area and was finished off at first touch from an impossible angle by the Metalist star. Even Taison didn't believe it., but i had done it. He put his hands to his head, shrugged and, like the people in the stadium, finally recovered.

“It was the goal of the year, surely. Or the goal of the century, I do not know. it's been amazing”, declared el centrocampista Bořek Dočkal. The sentiment was widely shared around the world, even in Holland, where the Telegraaf commented that Marco van Basten's goal in the UEFA European Championship final in 1988 had finally been matched.
