Andriy Yarmolenko scored a goal of the tournament contender with a sensational curling left-footed strike against the Netherlands.
Yarmolenko bagged a wondergoal which proved to be in vain as Ukraine lost 3-2 in Amsterdam on Sunday.
In the 75th minute, the West Ham man cut onto his trusted left peg and unleashed an unstoppable shot past the hapless Maarten Stekelenburg in goal.
“The finish is absolutely phenomenal… it starts three yards out of the post and curls all the way in!” 🤩

Yarmolenko is one big left foot. But what a left foot!

One tweeted: “Out of the Arjen Robben top drawer.”
A second wrote: “WHAT A GOAL! YOU DONT SEE THEM LIKE THAT EVERY DAY!”
A third added: “He’s the Ukrainian Nani.”
Unfortunately for Yarmolenko, his goal failed to earn Ukraine any points as they resume their European Championship campaign against North Macedonia next Thursday.
