Andre Schurrle makes yard of space, goes Upper 90 from 30 yards

Britain Soccer Premier League

Andre Schurrle will shoot from anywhere.

The German bagged his fourth Premier League goal for Fulham on Saturday to give the Cottagers an 11th minute lead in Wales.

What makes the goal extra special is that it’s not one of those long distance goals where he had acres of space and gave it a go.

Schurrle creates some space and belts a shot upper 90, leaving Neil Etheridge in “What just happened?” territory.

Cardiff would strike for two against Fulham’s woeful defense before I could even finish this post, but the goal is still sublime. Update: Cardiff being Cardiff, it’s now 2-2 via Ryan Sessegnon.

Schurrle now has as many league goals this season as he’s registered since 2015-16 with Wolfsburg.
