A brilliant goal you wont have seen: Marek Gancarczyk (Slask Wroclaw) vs Lechia Gdansk

Unfortunately we missed this goal from our regular Goals of the Week list this Monday and, making sure no stone is left unturned, time has come to flag up this beauty from Marek Gancarczyk.

The footage comes from Saturday’s Polish Ekstraklasa fixture between Lechia Gdansk and Slask Wroclaw which ended up 1-apiece.

On the stroke of halftime with the match still goalless, visitors Slask were looking to build one last attack to try and break the deadlock.Hosts Lechia however were equally determined to go into the break without conceding, and in turn they flooded their defence with green and white shirts looking to close out the opening 45.

In order to prise open the Gdansk defence, Slask looked for width on the right hand side as the ball was played to Marek Gancarczyk.

As soon as Gancarczyk received possession the number nine gave a little look-up, only to realise that the congested centre of the pitch made finding a teammate nigh on impossible. With no-one to pass to Gancarczyk opted to take matters into his own hands, taking on the Gdansk number 3 as he continued to gain yardage down the right flank.

And then came the moment of genius. Having advanced past the 18-yard line still close to the right-hand touchline Gancarczyk, facing another defender, chose to go no further. Instead the forward let rip with an audacious effort which arrowed from right to left, rocketing into the far top corner with unbelievable precision.

Home keeper Mateusz Bak could only stand and watch as Gancarczyk scored from an almost impossible angle.

As a bonus, we have a second brilliant goal for you to enjoy.

From Sunday night’s match in Mexico in which Club America thumped Toluca 7-2, the goal of the game saw America’s Daniel “Rolfi” Montenegro score from inside his own half.
