For a second I thought maybe Ndombele was trying to cross the ball here. But looking at it a few more times he seems intent on flicking the ball to the far post – up and over the keeper. Which he does with aplomb. Surely one of the goals of the year in the English Premier League.
What’s more, it’s a clever give and go exchange and genius chip pass that puts Ndombele through. It’s just good football by Tottenham Hotspurs. Watch Ndombele’s goal for Spurs below. It’s an outside of the foot volley to the far post from a difficult angle as he’s falling down and pressured by two defenders.
