Must-See Goal: Jens Hegeler

  1. Kiessling and Rolfes were quoted as basically thinking WTF?! when he kicked it as they were expecting a cross into the area. It certainly caught the keeper off guard.

      • Seriously? 30+ yards out, at a reasonably sharp angle (about 10 yards outside the post), ball was bent rather than driven, and was curled away from, rather than around the keeper. And it went in on the goalkeeper’s side. GK moved in the wrong direction (if you’re anticipating a near post shot over the wall, you need to set up closer to the near post….not step that direction as the ball is kicked), AND he reacted very late.

        Looked nice. Indeed, it WAS nice. But I would expect most professional goalkeepers to save that. Not as bad as Hart’s howler…but GK didn’t exactly cover himself in glory on this one.
