Raul Jimenez Rips A Half-Volley Into The Roof Of The Net To Put El Tri Up On Poland

Mexico’s November European tour has been a goal fest, and Jimenez just got in on the act.

Some 40,000 Poles showed up at the Stadion Energa Gdansk to celebrate Poland’s qualification for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia with a friendly match against Mexico on Monday, but the feel-good energy enveloping the arena was quickly ruined by El Tri striker Raul Jimenez.

The Benfica forward looked hungry early on, sending a battling header straight at Poland goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny in the game’s opening minutes, but he made no mistake with his second effort only 13 minutes in.

Javier Aquino gets credited with the assist, but the finish is all Jimenez. What a hit.
