Stoke City’s Xherdan Shaqiri Scored The Prettiest Half-Volley Soccer Goal You’ll See All Year
During an English Premier League match tied at one apiece, Stoke City striker Xherdan Shaqiri gave his team a 2-1 lead over Everton to take into the halftime locker room with this absolutely marvelous one touch, half-valley goal courtesy of a fantastically placed long ball from his teammate, former Barcelona and Roma man, Bojan Krkic.
The precision touch to beat Everton keeper Tim Howard is easily one of the prettiest goals of the EPL season, if not the best half-volley of the year. Here’s Shaqiri’s go-ahead goal from a few more angles.
Shaqiri, Shaqiri! Hips don't lie, and neither do incredible goals. 👏 👍 👌 👇 https://t.co/4GCKDSsIod

Well done, sir. Well done indeed. It seems as if the coin Stoke City laid out for this guy is paying off. Sensational stuff.
