Marcel Halstenberg what a goal with stunning strike Germany lead vs Northern Ireland

Germany were forced to work hard in their clash against Northern Ireland on Monday night, but Marcel Halstenberg ensured they took the lead in style.

The 27-year-old had three caps to his name prior to this week, as his form for RB Leipzig has ensured that he has been given a chance to impress on the international stage.

He’ll certainly remember his trip to Northern Ireland after this, as he produced a sensational strike to break the deadlock.

As seen in the video below, the German international saw a ball into the box get a flick on into his path on the far side of the pitch, and with no need to take a touch to get the ball under control, Halstenberg unleashed a stunning first-time effort which flew into the back of the net.

The technique and quality required to pull this off makes it a brilliant individual goal, and he’ll surely have a hard time producing a better strike in his career…
