We Could Watch Leroy Sane's 'Knuckleball' Free-Kick Against Schalke All Night Long
Leroy Sane scored against former club Schalke this evening with a free-kick of the highest order.
Manchester City went down to ten men in Gelsenkirchen after Nicolas Otamendi received a second yellow card, but that didn't hamper their chances in Germany.
Raheem Sterling scored in the 89th minute to seal a huge 3-2 win but this absolute stunner from Sane grabbed goal of the game.
This is how you knuckleball, folks. WHAT A HIT!

Schalke reacted woefully to the red card but Sane's free-kick was as exceptional as it was unsaveable. Galvanised City. Sterling one of the players of the season.- Samuel Luckhurst (@samuelluckhurst) February 20, 2019

It was an incredible game from start to finish.
Sergio Aguero opened the scoring in the 18th minute, but two penalties from Nabil Bentaleb gave the Bundesliga side a 2-1 lead at half-time.
Then in a moment of class, Sane smashed in a thunderbolt from around 25 yards and Sterling sealed the game with a tap in.
