Amazing effort

Amazing goal.

Emre Can scored what might be the goal of the season on Monday night against Watford.

The Liverpool midfielder scored an acrobatic bicycle kick from 15 yards, after Lucas Leiva lofted the ball into the penalty area.

The 23-year-old will never top this.

The Premier League game at Vicarage Road had been uneventful until that point, with Philippe Coutinho going off injured the only talking point from the first 45 minutes.

Until Can scored an absolute worldie.

The German midfielder’s effort┬áis the best overhead kick in the English top flight since Wayne Rooney’s acrobatic goal against Manchester City back in 2011.

Can’s goal was probably even better because it didn’t come off his shin and his magnificent hair didn’t move an inch.

The reaction of the Watford fans in attendance summed up how great the goal was. They were genuinely stunned.
