As we know, the ball striking the crossbar and bouncing down increases the aesthetic quality of a goal by at least 60%. It is known as the Tony Yeboah effect.
This is what happened with Jon Walters' cracker for Stoke against Chelsea on Tuesday night.
52 minutes into their League Cup clash, Jon Walters twisted the knife into Jose Mourinho just a little bit more with a super strike.
Taking a pass from Glenn Whelan on the edge of the box, Walters turned and smacked the ball perfectly past Asmir Begovic in the Chelsea goal to give Stoke the lead.
