Sometimes we don’t need need to see the ball hit the back of the net to enjoy a great highlight. Michael Krmencik showed exactly why in the match against OFI in Heraklion with a header that defied the laws of physics. The Czech’s effort was denied by the woodwork, however, meaning he missed out on what would have been a wonderful goal. Nothing could stop him claiming the prize for the PAOK TV Play of the month, though.
PAOK traveled to Crete to take on OFI in a tough away match. The Double-headed Eagle had a hard time in the opening half against Giorgos Simos’ men, but managed to lock up an important win in hte second half, going on to win 3-0.
In the first half, Michael Krmencik made sure to provide us with the highlight of the match. Adelino Vieirinha sent over a cross, and the ball headed in the direction of the Czech fiorward. The flight of the ball seemed too high for Krmencik, but that was not the case.
Krmencik defied the laws of gravity and generally the laws of physics and positioned his body in a way that he was about not only to make contact with the ball, but direct it in impressive fashion goalwards. Unfortunately, he was denied what would have been a superb goal by a few inches, with the woodwork stopping his effort from going in.
In the poll for the Play of the Month for January, though, the Czech received 59,14% of the votes to take hom his first individual award with his new club.
In second place was Α.Ζivkovic’s exceptional through-ball for Murg’s goal against Panetolikos, and in third was the combination play from the corner which lead to Swiderski assisting Ingason to score in the the match against Volos.
