Xherdan Shaqiri scored an absolute thunderbolt for Stoke City in their 3-1 victory over Hull City on Saturday.
Shaqiri has made his name for scoring a host a brilliant goals throughout his career, and his effort at the Bet365 stadium was no different.
Stoke had taken the lead in the first half thanks to an excellent goal from Marko Arnautovic, but Hull equalised through Harry Maguire.
The introductions of Peter Crouch and Jonathan Walters off the bench swung the game back in Stoke’s favour, with the former heading the hosts back in front via a cross from the latter.
But that was nothing in comparison to Shaqiri’s strike, with the former Bayern Munich and Inter Milan winger unleashing an unstoppable drive from long distance.
