Vieirinha’s net-buster lands Regency Best Goal of the Season
In case you were wondering, the answer is yes. The extraordinary strike of Adelino Vieirinha against Panetolikos in Agrinio for the Greek Super League was voted by you as Regency Casino Best Goal of the Season.
A spot kick and the direct free-kick in the Greek Cup final of 2018 against AEK Athens were the only goals André Vieirinha scored in his first 18 months since returning to the “Double-Headed Eagle”. A low-scoring trend that would change in January 2019…
His move to left back wouldn’t allow him to deploy his attacking talents. But when the need for goals became imperative and the troops of Răzvan Lucescu had to come up with solutions, the Portuguese skipper stepped up. With a string of crucial goals, he had a major impact in PAOK’s march towards the domestic double. But one goal stood out from the rest.
The Agrinio match was getting more complicated as minutes passed. Panetolikos took an unexpected lead and PAOK players were with their backs against the wall. Their captain’s class decided matters though. The ball came towards him, he controlled it with his chest and didn’t need to think twice before unleashing an astonishing volley to beat the rival goalkeeper.
This goal lead to the comeback, as Léo Matos scored the winner a few minutes later.
This goal by #TheLeader will be remembered for a long time by PAOK fans.
Chuba Akpom landed in second place with his overhead kick in the Greek Cup final, a goal that secured the club’s first ever domestic double. The direct free-kick of André Vieirinha against Asteras in Tripolis completed the podium of the poll.
