Josef Martinez with just a wonder of a volley. Makes you think of that Marco van Basten volley bit. Martinez scores from a very tough angle. The ball is high in the air. Martinez makes a difficult volley so easy. Plus, he has to sprint to get to the ball but he knows what he wants to do and wraps is foot around the ball and hits it with power. The keeper had no chance.
Watch the Josef Martinez wonder volley. Some of his teammates are in disbelief at the goal and his coaches are overjoyed.
Here’s what Martinez’s manager at Atlanta United had to say about the volley.
“I couldn’t believe it,” he said. “One of the most beautiful goals I’ve seen. I think the execution, the angle, the way he placed the ball in the top corner, the moment of the game where probably we were not super sharp in the final third missing a few chances and then Josef coming to do what he does best, which is scoring fantastic goals.
I’m just very happy for him because it was a very hard season for him personally with injuries and finishing the season with a last great goal is very encouraging for him.”
