Jordi Gomez scores stunning goal from his own half

It’s difficult to imagine the satisfaction that must come with spotting a keeper off their line and actually managing to ping it over him from your own half.

Well that’s exactly what former Wigan and Sunderland midfielder, Jordi Gomez, who is now plying his trade with Omonia Nicosia, did in the Europa League against PSV Eindhoven.

After his side won a foul around ten yards back from the halfway line, Gomez spotted the PSV keeper precariously away from his line and took the free kick before he had time to adjust.

It’s some effort.

Unfortunately it wasn’t to be for the Cypriot side on the night, as PSV came from behind to win 2-1, scoring a dramatic 92nd minute goal to seal the victory.

This sublime effort comes just a week after Rangers man Keemar Roofe bagged an effort from similar distance.

Not a bad week for goals, eh?
