Real Madrid's Toni Kroos Scores Directly From A Corner Against Valencia
Toni Kroos scored an incredible quickly-taken corner during Real Madrid's victory over Valencia.
The German midfielder's quick thinking saw Real Madrid open the scoring against Valencia in Wednesday's Spanish Supercopa clash.
He swiftly placed the ball on the corner quadrant then took a few steps back before unleashing a terrific right-footed strike.
He curled the ball into the net with Valencia keeper Jaume Doménech horribly caught out as he failed to keep the ball out.
Toni Kroos the German sniper strikes again :dart:
