Fabian Schar may have scored a stunner on Tuesday, but it seems this isn’t the only impressive long-range strike on his CV – with a clip emerging today of him netting from his own half back in 2011!
This comes from his spell with Swiss second tier side FC Wil 1900, with this brilliant 65-yard strike being just one of two goals he scored in their 3-2 win over FC Arau over 7 and a half years ago:
This was him at just 20 years old, and it seems moments of brilliance like this was part of the reason he was snapped up by Swiss giants Basel just a year later.
One thing that must be said about Schar is that he’s not only proven himself as an impressive ball player and scorer of great goals, but also a player who’s a more than capable defender.
He may have made the headlines with a great solo goal in our 3-0 win over Cardiff and once again for his 30-yard thunderbolt to help us beat Burnley in midweek, but he’s also standing up to the physical test of the Premier League brilliantly, being a big part of what’s been the 5th best defence in the top flight this season.
What a signing he looks to be for just £3m!
