RB Salzburg’s match-winning goal in the ‘Red Bull Derby’ was pure, unadulterated FIFA Street

It was only missing Harvey on commentary and Paddy Kenny between the sticks

Here’s your daily dose of nostalgia.

Sticking two-fingers up to football snobs, the Europa League produced some impressive golazos in it’s opening matchday.

Without a doubt the best strike of the competition so far came in the inaugural ‘Red Bull Derby.’

The same, but different

RB Leipzig hosted RB Salzburg in a game that could well have caused the universe to implode.

Count your lucky stars, you’re fortunate to be reading this.

The away side were the winners on the night, in what was an absolute thriller at the Red Bull Arena.

After Salzburg raced into a two-goal lead, Leipzig restored the parity with two second half goals, levelling in the 82nd minute.

With just one minute left on the clock, the visitors pulled off an outrageous winning-goal, the likes of which we haven’t seen since playing FIFA Street on PlayStation.

Paddy Kenny would have saved it though.

A precise counter attack that included not one, but two ridiculous back-heel flicks, was finished off in ice-cold fashion by Fredrik Gulbrandsen.

A bouncing ball in the centre of the pitch was met with Zlatan-like flick to outsmart a Leipzig player

I think I need a shower after observing that filth.

Leipzig fielded five former Salzburg players in their team on the night. That makes the win even more satisfying for the away side.

We can’t wait for the reverse fixture.
