Yes it’s a goal from practically the half-way line and yes it demonstrates impressive vision and technique from the goal-scorer. However, in this case, Ryan Jack’s long-range goal for Abderdeen in their 2-1 win against St Johnstone is a rather tame affair, all things considered. The ball bounces three times before finding the back of the net, while goalkeeper Peter Enckelman, once of Aston Villa, looks on when he arguably could’ve dived on the ball.

Still, it’s well worth another look!
