Deemed a surplus to requirements at Manchester United by Jose Mourinho, Memphis Depay is attempting to restart his career in France with Lyon after completing a January transfer.
During his time at United, Depay scored only two goals from 33 Premier League appearances. His record with his new club reads nine Ligue 1 matches, five goals. This strike against Toulouse on Sunday has to be the pick of them all.
21-year-old Luka Zahovic, a Slovenian youth international who was nominated for the FIFA Golden Boy award in 2014, has scored a beautiful goal for Maribor in league play.
An audacious flick with the heel of his boot served as a remarkable first touch, leaving two defenders in his wake. With the keeper rushing out and his angle narrowing, Zahovic’s second touch is a deft lob on the half-volley that arches over the goalkeeper and just under the crossbar.
Going into the second leg of a Champions League match down 1-5 against mighty Bayern Munich isn’t ideal. But Theo Walcott and Arsenal got an early goal in the 20th minute that gave them a glimmer of hope.
