FIFA celebrates Aribo’s brilliant solo goal
The Federation of International Football Association (FIFA) has celebrated Joe Aribo’s ‘wonder goal’ in Southampton’s pre-season defeat to Villarreal.
The Nigerian international took the ball from inside Southampton’s half and dribbled past five Villarreal players before slotting the ball into the net.
The midfielder had another goal chalked off for offside later in the game.
The world soccer ruling body posted a video of the sublime goal on their Twitter handle with the message;
“This goal excited @SouthamptonFC fans yesterday. Lung-bursting run from own half…Slalom style to rival best stars,” it wrote.
Aribo moved to the South Coast from Scottish Premiership club, Rangers last month.
Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side will kick-start the new campaign with a trip to Tottenham Hotspur this weekend.
