Gylfi Sigurdsson gets Everton fans purring with aesthetically pleasing goal

Gylfi Sigurdsson scored his first Premier League goal for Everton in sensational style

Crash, bang, wallop.

Nope, not the sound of Wayne Rooney tearing apart the dressing room after being dropped for Everton’s game against Southampton.

It was the sound of Gylfi Sigurdsson hitting the woodwork not once, not twice, but three times as he scored Everton’s equaliser.

Sigurdsson had seen his side go behind to a scuffed Dusan Tadic strike.

Deciding that it was about the time he lived up to his £40miillion price tag, the Icelandic midfielder hit back in sensational style.

It all started, as most good goals do, with the drop of a shoulder.

Now you see him…

Having sat Virgil van Dijk down it was now time for the main event.

Sigurdsson dipped a strike over Fraser Forster, simultaneously beating him with pace and managing to lob the 6ft 7in goalkeeper.

Impressive.

Up, up

But the really beautiful part was the woodwork being hit three times before the ball crossed the line.

Bar, post, bar.

Sounds like a trendy nightclub opened by Postman Pat. The type of place you can only drink if you’re a £40mil footballer.

Unfortunately laws prevent us from showing you the goal just yet.

But we’re sure if you did a bit of digging you’d be able to find the strike on Twitter*, or wherever the cool kids go to watch football now.
