The Western European leagues are all wrapped up for closed season, but the Russian Premier League’s final matchday went on until yesterday.
And saving the best for last, it may have provided the best assist of the Russian league season, or anywhere in Europe for that matter.
Pavel Golyshev twisted and contorted his body into an acrobatic position that a gymnast would have been proud of, to lay the ball off for Bashkirov to score Tomsk’s first goal in their win over Ufa.
What an assist! HOW?
