The strange and wonderful combined on Friday night in Holland’s Jupiler League as Danny Schreurs scored a wonder-goal for Fortuna Sittard against MVV Maastricht. But it is debatable whether the goal should have been allowed to stand, although with that being said, Fortuna forward Schreurs was undoubtedly innocent of any wrongdoing.
We join the action in the 72nd minute, with hosts Fortuna leading 2-1.
Picking up the ball 35-yards from goal, with two defenders for company and no teammates anywhere to be seen, Schreurs was left all on his lonesome in the Fortuna attack. But that troubled Schreurs little, as the striker superbly weaved his way in between the covering defenders, carrying the ball to the edge of the box before producing a wonderful chipped finish over the stranded keeper.
Amazingly, however, Schreurs’ goal was made all the more special as the striker refused to be put off by a rogue second ball that suddenly appeared on the pitch during the attack. With the second ball clearly getting in the way of the action, should Schreurs’ strike have been allowed to stand?
