Premier League goal of the day contenders

The Premier League goal of the day could only go to one man - and that’s Southampton’s Kenyan international Victor Wanyama.

With all due respect to Oscar’s outside-of-the-foot curled effort, Wanyama’s 40-yard instinctive finish was the perfect combination of technique and quick-thinking ability.

Less than 180 seconds into the Premier League fixture between Hull City and Southampton at the KC Stadium, Wanyama capitalised on a poor kick from Hull’s third choice keeper, Eldin Jakupovic.

The Tigers’ keeper miscued his clearance into the path of the Kenyan, who side-footed the ball first time back over the defence and into the empty net.

It’s his second of the season following his strike against Swansea earlier in the campaign. Although the £12m signing from Celtic has been forced to be patient in a crowded Saints midfield, he has been exceptional whenever given the opportunity this season.

A broken leg curtailed his progress last term, but he has now returned to form a key part of Ronald Koeman’s squad, and is a big reason why Southampton’s defensive record has been so good.

European goal of the day

Elsewhere in Europe, Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 15th goal in seven games - the Real Madrid man has now scored 20 goals since Aston Villa last found the net. A startling statistic.

But the real stunner in that game was the strike from Colombian ace James Rodriguez. From a throw-in, Karim Benzema helped the ball up, and Rodriguez instinctively took the snapshot on the volley early from the corner of the 18-yard box.

The ball sailed into the opposite corner with the keeper helpless.
