Everyone inside Celtic Park was raving about Kyogo’s goal in the 2-0 win over Ferencvaros back on October 19 when the Japanese striker opened the scoring against the Hungarian champions with a truly wonderful strike.
Well, it wasn’t only the Celtic Park crowd who were hailing the goal as it came out top in UEFA’s Goal Of The Group Stage in the Europa League.
Jota’s pass for Kyogo also played a vital part in the stunning strike which gathered a monster 43 per cent of the vote for the 10 goals nominated by UEFA.
The goal was a thing of beauty that started with Jota in the left-back position, he drifted into midfield and, from halfway inside the Celtic half, played a 50-yard ball to exactly inside halfway inside the Ferencvaros half.
Kyogo took an excellent touch, and with his next touch the ball was on its way past the keeper and into the back of the net.
