VIDEO: How about this for a long-range screamer?

Stefan Ishizaki puts Elfsborg ahead with a first-time volley from past the half-way line – worth a goo.

STEP FORWARD STEFAN ISHIZAKI, the latest in a select group of long-range experts.

Ishizaki put his side Elfsborg 1-0 up away to Orebro after six minutes and did it by first-time volleying back the goalkeeper’s clearance, from his own half.
