Double up for Vieirinha in Best Goal contest
Whenever he hits the ball exactly how he wants it, the truth is that the goalkeeper’s hopes are reduced to a minimum. Even if he shoots with his “weaker” foot, as in this case. Andre Vieirinih’s stunning goal against FC Midtjylland is the official goal of the season according to the fans and his teammates.
The clock was at 26 minutes. PAOK were already leading 1-0 and were seeking another goal to clinch qualification. This is where The Leader came in. He saw the ball coming towards him from outside the area. Acting quickly, he showed exceptional control to get the ball where he wanted it, before unleashing an unstoppable shot without giving it a second thought. The ball flew into the top corner and another glorious moment for him and the team was realized.
Despite the fierce competition he had in the public poll, and also that between the players, Vieirinha won both the Regency Casino Best Goal and the Players’ Best Goal of the Year for the 2021-22 season.
The Double-headed Eagle players and fans were in absolute agreement this time round, giving The Leader a well-deserved double success. There was also unanimity in the second-placed goal, with Kurtic’s wonder strike against AEK at the OAKA taking the … silver medal.
Opinions differed for third place, with the public choosing Colak’s Greek Cup semi-final strike at the «Georgios Karaiskakis», while the players voted for Sastre’s buzzer-beater against Panathinaikos at the Toumba.
