Juan Mata scored a fantastic goal to give Spain a 1-0 lead over Macedonia tonight with a right footed cross that lobbed the goalkeeper.
On his weaker foot, Mata sent in what looked like a cross but it perfectly nestled into the top apex of the goal off the post.
Was it a cross or a shot? It doesn’t really matter as it was a great goal either way and the perfect thing for Mata to get ahead of Liverpool on Saturday.
Here’s a video of Mata’s fantastic goal against Macedonia. Pick that one out:
We all know Mata loves to score a great goal against the scousers, so maybe he is warming up his goalscoring boots for another one this weekend. Let’s hope so.
