Video: Andreas Christensen dispatches 30-yard thunderbastard v Russia

First-time, right-footed, from 30 yards out and on the volley. Andreas Christensen struck an absolute rocket that should not find it hard to win the goal of the tournament during Denmark’s crunch Group B clash against Russia.

It was a thunder-volley of the highest standard as it kept rising until it hit the back of Matvei Safonov’s net.

Playing in the Parken Arena, where teammate Christian Eriksen almost lost his life just 9 days ago, Denmark had to beat Russia by at least two goals to advance to the knockout stage.

With a goal up and 10 minutes remaining on the clock, Christensen slammed an earth-shattering goal to put his country through.

The Chelsea defender had the Copenhagen crowd bouncing as fans overcame with emotion after his sensational volley.
