Watch: Toni Kroos scores a stunner directly from a corner during Real Madrid vs Valencia. Los Blancos won the match 3-1.
Toni Kroos took a leaf out of Trent Alexander-Arnold’s book and upped the ante to score Real Madrid’s opener in the semi-final of the Spanish Super Cup. Noticing an empty net, the German midfielder quickly sent in a curling effort from the corner.
Valencia keeper Jaume Domenech was horribly caught out and despite a last grasp attempt, he failed to prevent the ball from finding its way behind the net. The shot was taken so quickly that even the TV camera missed it!

It is extremely hard to send the ball inside the goal from the corner. To do so quickly without wasting a second, is even harder as it takes immense concentration and pin-point accuracy to do so and yet Kroos manged to do so without breaking a sweat.
What makes this even sweeter is that despite scoring an absolute worldie, Kroos celebrated the goal like it was just another.
Real Madrid midfielders Isco and Luka Modric scored on either side of the two halves to triple their lead before pulled one back through Daniel Parejo in extra time with a penalty. However, it was too little too late as Los Blancos walked out the winners.
