I happened to catch this superb goal on Fox Soccer as they were going through some of the best goals in the FA Cup this year. This is a wonderful fake by Hasselbaink to open up the space for the shot. He fakes like he’s going to shoot the ball but let’s the ball run through his legs and strikes the ball with his other foot, bending the ball to the far post.
