When Thierry Henry scored that magnificent volley against Manchester United back in 2000, we thought it was as good as it got in terms of turn around volleys. It was unstoppable, and nobody could possibly top it. Until now.
J-League star Hisato Sato scored a sublime volley that will give Henry's a run for his money when the Sanfrecce Hiroshima striker equalised for his team in spectacular fashion.
The ball was played to him at pace on the edge of the penalty area whilst he was facing his own goal.
But in just two touches, the first to flick the ball up in the air, and a swivel of the hips while striking the ball with his second touch, he soon had the ball nestling in the back of the net. Leaving the 'keeper dazed and confused.
Manager Hijame Moriyasu's face summed it up best as he looked on in awe.
