WATCH: Lanzini’s half-curl, half-chip leaves Howard helpless

Last year, Manuel Lanzini was playing for Al Jazira Club in the UAE League.

Scooped by Slaven Bilic for West Ham, the 22-year-old has scored several stunners for the Irons.

He added to his resume on Saturday with this cheeky wonder that defied Tim Howard to give West Ham a 1-0 lead.

Picking up a loose ball outside the 18, Lanzini took a touch before half-curling, half-chipping a shot around the USMNT keeper.

The lead didn’t make it to halftime, though the highlight is sure to have more staying power.
