Benjamin Sesko scores Van Basten-esque volley against Sweden, one of the best goals you'll see this season
| Last updated
Benjamin Sesko produced a moment of magic as he smashed home a Marco van Basten-esque volley against Sweden.
The Slovenian sensation opened the scoring in their Nations League clash in remarkable fashion.
In the 28th minute, Petar Stojanovic lofted an inviting pass to Sesko.
On his left foot, the 19-year-old unleashed a superb strike which picked out the back of the net.
Sesko's outrageous goal bares a striking resemblance to Van Basten's legendary volley at Euro 98.
His goal, though, wasn't enough to earn the victory as Emil Forsberg levelled just before the break.

But fans online loved his volley.
One Twitter user wrote: "Benjamin Sesko is a baller!"
A second tweeted: "Sesko with a Van Bastetn type of volley."
A third added: "Sesko has just scored one of the best goals you’ll see all season."
Sesko is currently at Red Bull Salzburg, but has an agreement to join RB Leipzig in the summer of 2023.
He's been dubbed the 'new Haaland', with the likes of Real Madrid, Chelsea and Manchester United expressing an interest in the superstar talent during the summer transfer window.
