Firing home a golazo is one way to make up for your terrible first touch

Jaume Costa’s second touch was significantly better than his first.

THEY MAY NOT have won their La Liga clash with Deportivo La Coruna this weekend, but the game gave Villareal a sure-fire entry in the Spanish goal of the season competition.

With the ball played to him on the edge of the Deportivo area, Jaume Costa’s first touch is awful as the ball loops up and away from the defender.

However, the 27-year old’s second touch is sublime as he fired home an outside-of-the-boot volley that gave the goalkeeper no chance.
