Hulk scores screamer to help Porto win O Classico
His release clause might be ridiculously high, and there still may be an educated train of thought that he hasn’t proved himself enough yet on the biggest stage, but Hulk showed Europe (and maybe Chelsea fans) exactly how talented he is last night with the opener in Porto’s match against Benfica, Portugal’s O Classico.
Picking the ball up on the right wing, Hulk crashed in a left-footed shot which was recorded at an astonishing 108K/ph in midflight.
Crikey, that’s less than 3mph below the speed limit.
Porto went on to win the game 3-2 with two late goals in a match that was billed as the title decider, with the two clubs occupying the top two places in the Portuguese Primeira Liga.
