Play of the day: Taison scores incredible volley

Brazilian midfielder Taison scored an early contender for goal of the season yesterday with a spectacular volley in his Ukrainian side's Europa League clash win.

Taison evoked memories of Marco van Basten's famous strike in the Euro '88 final with a volley off the outside of his boot which flew into the top corner from a nigh on impossible angle from the right edge of the penalty box.

The strike helped his Ukrainian side Metalist Kharkiv to a 3-1 win over over Rosenborg, and will be long remembered for it's style and technique.
