Free kick god Hakan Çalhanoğlu is back with another stunner

Sorry, Köln.

FC Köln were doing very well against Bayer Leverkusen until they committed a foul 20 yards from goal. That's a very, very bad idea, because Bayer have Hakan Çalhanoğlu, who has firmly established himself as the world's leading provider of insane free kick goals.

There's been a bit of a gap between the golden age of free-kick specialists -- David Beckham, Juninho, Shinsuke Nakamura and Juan Roman Riquelme were all in their primes at the same time! -- but Çalhanoğlu is here to bring us out of a dark age, and for that, we are thankful.
