As we discussed earlier, Dejan Stankovic scored an absolutely ridiculous goal just 20 seconds into the 2011 UEFA Champions League match between Inter Milan and Schalke. Lucky for you, we have the video! Usually, when something like this happens, there's a seriously stupid error made by the defense. In that case, that's hardly the case. Sure, someone should have closed down Stankovic and Farfan shouldn't have lost the ball in the first place, but there's no one to really blame this goal on. It's just absolutely brilliant. Check it out:
Schalke have since pulled a goal back, while Stankovic has picked up a knock and left the game, but it was still an absolutely unbelievable way to open the match. It was probably the main catalyst for the pace of the game as well, as Schalke likely would not have been as ambitious going forward, and would have instead sat back and defended. Thanks to the goal, the game is an absolute cracker.
