I don’t think we need any introduction, when it comes to Riyad Mahrez. We’ve seen everything he has to offer over the last 12 months.
But what makes him a special, special player is his ability to conjure unexpected moments out of the thin air, just like he did over the weekend.
The Leicester City star was on national duty with Algeria, as they faced Lesotho in the African Cup of Nations qualifiers. On the 17th minute mark, Mahrez pulled off a stunning free-kick to make it 2-0 on the night, and effectively put Algeria in the driving seat.
Here’s a video of his incredible goal!
