Real Madrid’s Marco Asensio has scored an absolute peach for Spain

That. Stays. Hit.

The good news for English football is that the future looks bright as seen by the magnificent performance of the u-20s at the World Cup this summer.

The bad news is that never-ending supply line of gifted Spanish footballers shows no signs of slowing down and La Roja have made the perfect start to their 2017 UEFA European Under-21 Championship against Macedonia.

Albert Celades’s side boasted some genuine proven quality in their starting XI with Arsenal’s highly coveted full-back Hector Bellerin, Barcelona’s Denis Suarez and Atletico Madrid’s superb Saul Niguez all starting.

In fact, it was Saul who opened the scoring after he displayed some wonderful technique to execute the bicycle kick.

Still though, the ‘keeper will not want to see this one again.

Spain are leading 3-0 at the break but there’s no doubt about who scored the best goal of the opening half.

Take a look at what Real Madrid’s Marco Asensio can do from distance.

Granted, we know that the attacking midfielder can be deadly as seen in the Champions League final, but this goal is far better than the one he scored against Juventus in Cardiff.

Power, pace, swerve and accuracy.

The ‘keeper never even moved.
