This is the Nigerian Premier League Goal Everyone Won’t Stop Talking About

The day MFM FC actually brought fire to the pitch

Nigerians’ prayers of winning Puskas Award (FIFA’s Award for best goal) seems a little closer to being answered with Sikiru Olatunbosun’s left footed volley on Saturday. The miracle goal came just in time to ensure that Lagos’ MFM FC (Mountain Of Fire and Miracles FC) were 2-1 winners over Enugu’s Rangers during Saturday’s premier league game.

The build up was something even Barcelona would be proud of with the flicked passes and precise through balls. Over the weekend, the video of the goal went viral and got featured by Fox Sports as the goal of the day.

Its hard to pick who is more deserving of the glory for this one—the team-play, the goalscorer or God—but that was one beautiful goal.
