Watch: Ludogrets Player Releases Inner Riise With Thunderbastard Free-Kick

Where were you when John Arne Riise socred that free-kick against Manchester United all those years ago? You know the one we're talking about, where Didi Hamann rolled him the ball, before he buried it in with the help of the crossbar?

Here's a video to refresh your memory.

It remains one of the most iconic free-kicks in Premier League history. It wouldn't be the only spectacular goal Riise would score in red, racking up quite the highlight reel before he would depart Anfield.

The Europa League is back tonight, with a number of games taking place throughout the continent. Considering the sheer amount of matches you can almost guarantee you will get one or two special moments in each round.

Still, we didn't think it would come in the Ferencvárosi and Ludogorets game.


After taking a first minute lead, Ludogorets would score their second of the game five minutes before halftime. It came via Rafael Forster, and what a goal it was.

Sit back and enjoy this one.

Lovely. There's just something special about a free-kick that's still rising as it hits the back of the net.

Probably not as good as Riise's, but not bad all the same.
