Golazo! A stunning backheel volley from Lukas Spalvis (Lithuania U21) v Finland U21

A wonderful goal was scored in Lithuania U21s 2-2 draw in Finland on Tuesday.

Playing in the Under-21s European Championship qualifier in Oulu, Lithuania went 2-1 ahead in the 70th minute when a terrific team move was capped by a wonderful finish from Lukas Spalvis.

Lithuania carved an opening through Finland’s backline with a neat interchange of passing on their right hand side. Once in the clear an excellent cross was pinged into the box, where Spalvis connected with a backheel volley that arrowed into the near post.

18-year-old Spalvis finished the match with a brace: the first goals for his country on just his second appearance.
