WATCH: Wesley Sneijder Delightfully Lobs Keeper From Outside The Box
Not everybody was off for Christmas as Turkish giants Galatasaray were in action taking on Alanyaspor, and they thumped the visitors 5-1 securing all three points, but what a goal from their midfield maestro Wesley Sneijder.
At the time of the goal, the score was 2-1 so the importance of the Dutchman's contribution was ultimately very crucial.
Great win and very important 3 points for the team! Happy to contribute with a goal and assists. Merry Christmas everyone:soccer::christmas_tree::snowman::santa: pic.twitter.com/XLxnCjWCbJ- Wesley Sneijder (@sneijder101010) December 25, 2016
Sneijder received the ball from outside the box and nonchalantly controlled it before delightfully chipping the keeper from 15-odd-yards out with his next touch.
