Santi Cazorla Scores Another Screamer For Al Sadd And He's Making It Look Easy

Santi Cazorla has started life perfectly over in Qatar by netting another screamer for Al Sadd.


The former Arsenal midfielder joined the Qatar Stars League side from Villarreal this summer and he already looks right at home.

Thursday night saw Spaniard net twice on his QSL debut in a 5-1 win over Al Kharaitiyat.

Cazorla managed to open the scoring from a cutback but he really turned on the style to grab his second.

He receives the ball outside the box and takes a single touch before rifling a left footed strike into the bottom corner.

It adds another stunning goal to his highlight reel after a curled effort in the Oorredoo Cup against Al-Ahli last week.

Cazorla's spectacular strike went in off the bar and he looked calm and composed during the celebrations.

Not a bad way to get off the mark for a new club and manager Xavi looked delighted.

Fans have reacted to the 35-year-old's performances and the diminutive midfielder is reminding us all why he is so highly rated.

Cazorla's later career had been ravaged by injury and he departed Arsenal in 2018 after two years on the sidelines.

He required ten operations on an Achilles tendon injury and even needed a skin graft from his arm.

The former Malaga man also revealed that he nearly lost his foot after contracting gangrene back in 2017.

It is nothing short of a miracle that he has returned to playing, never mind being back to his best.

Cazola has admitted he will always be upset he never got a proper goodbye with the Gunners after six years on the books.

"It was frustrating to not be able to say goodbye to a club who treated me so well," he told BBC Sport.

"It is something left in my career to say goodbye properly. I am eternally grateful to the club and the fans for the way they continue to treat me."
