Luuk de Jong has scored either a genuinely great goal or one of the weirdest fluke strikes of the season against Northern Ireland.
Watch below as De Jong appears to apply some poor control to a cross into the box, only to accidentally set himself up perfectly for a close-range finish.

Is this the goal that put an end to Northern Ireland’s hopes of Euro 2020 qualification??

Decide for yourself if he meant it or if this is just a player getting lucky with some poor control.
Holland are known for producing technically gifted players, with Dennis Bergkamp a known master of the expert first touch, but we’re not sure this falls into that category…
