Oh my god. Oh my god. Oh my god.
This is one of those goals that you’re going to be seeing over and over again for years to come, and you know what? You’re never going to get bored of it.
We talk about football being the beautiful game quite flippantly, but Sevilla’s second goal against Valencia in the Copa del Rey might just be one of the greatest testaments to that sentiment we’ve ever seen.
Funnily enough, the move actually starts with a relatively wayward punt out from Sevilla keeper Yassine Bounou. From the moment Luuk de Jong manages to keep the ball in though, it gets more and more ridiculous as things progress.
Stick the kettle on, put your feet up and enjoy.
37 passes later, and after managing to kickstart the move, it’s actually de Jong who finishes things off too.
Unsurprisingly, the stunning effort was the longest sequence to lead to a goal from any La Liga team this season.
37 – El segundo gol de Luuk de Jong ?? ha llegado tras una secuencia de 37 pases ininterrumpidos, en la que han participado los 11 jugadores del @SevillaFC, y que es la más larga de un equipo de LaLiga esta temporada entre todas las competiciones.

Sevilla went on to seal a place in the Copa del Rey quarter finals, winning the game 3-0 thanks to a double from de Jong, and a third from Ivan Rakitic.
Might we have another Puskas contender on our hands already?
