Daigo Nishi Blasts Incredible Volley Off Corner Kick

This comes from a Japanese Football League match between the Kashima Antlers and Sanfrecce Hiroshima and it is a missile. On a designed play, the Antlers punched a corner kick to Daigo Nishi, a lone defender outside the box and he connected on a dazzling volley. No one saw it coming, or going, and it popped the back of the net. The Antlers went on to win 5-1.


As has been noted elsewhere, the play was almost a step-by-step reproduction of Paul Scholes's goal for Manchester United in 2000. You might as well watch that one, too, because nasty goals are always worth a watch.
