Sports media and singers praised the beautiful goal, as most of them described it as the goal that is taught in the method of moving from defense to attack under the pressure of the opponent without losing the ball, and scoring the goal after a number of correct passes without any error.
The perfect start that Sevilla put together to break the pressure of Valencia and that ends in a goal. A round play…. https://t.co/RoUWiLFadJ
