Shaqiri not bashful after wonder lob: “It’s a beautiful goal”

Xherdan Shaqiri had his finishing boots on, and he knows a good goal when he sees one.

The Swiss star netted twice in Stoke City’s 4-3 win over Everton, including the beautiful goal above.

A razor-thin run found Shaqiri on the end of a searching Bojan Krkic cross, and the finish was not missing at all.

From the BBC:

“It’s a beautiful goal and an important goal for the team. The ball was good and deep from Bojan, the finish was good too! I really enjoyed looking back at it on the TV but more important was the three points.”

Tell us how you really feel.

Stoke moves three points clear of Everton, and sits in eighth place with 29 points after Monday’s thriller at Goodison Park.
