Let’s be honest. Before this year’s Europa League qualifiers kicked into action only the biggest football geeks would have been able to hold a conversation on Estonian minnows Tallinna FC Flora. However, despite exiting the competition on Thursday night losing 4-2 on aggregate to Brondby, Tallinna FC Flora have most definitely made their mark on the European stage after claiming yet another wonder-goal.
In the first leg it was the turn of right-back Tonis Vanna to left the crowds purring with his incredible 35-yard strike which ripped into the top corner. Seven days later, Siksten Kasimir stepped up to steal the limelight.
With the hosts building a controlled attack en route to goal, possession was switched from right to left before the ball was cushioned back to Kasimir who was stationed in midfield. After taking two touches, one to control the ball dead and the second to shift the ball onto his right foot, Kasimir found himself with a clear sight of goal from 25-yards out.
Without a moment’s hesitation, and smacking his shot as clean as a whistle, Kasimir rifled off a bullet that flew past the keeper.
It always looks better when the ball crashes into the net off the underside of the bar!
