It’s fair to say that some overhead kicks are purer than others, and this one from Danny Welbeck has a large element of shin involved.
In a way it’s probably a good thing that he didn’t catch it perfectly, as it allowed the ball to loop away from the keeper and into the top corner:
OH DANNY WELBECK! ?
He polishes Watford's counter attack off with a lovely overhead kick. What a finish!

Welbeck as a history of improvising and scoring some unconventional goals, but this could be a huge one for Watford as they look to avoid relegation.
Welbeck’s career will sadly be remembered by most as a talented player who was injury prone and forced out wide due to his work rate, but this shows that he has some (perhaps unintended) class too.
