Nikola Vlašić and CSKA Moscow finally woke up offensively since the Russian Premier League restarted the season on June 20th. In their previous two matches, CSKA have only managed to salvage one point while scoring zero goals. Vlašić got them out of the gutter Tuesday night in a 2-0 victory over Spartak Moscow. In the 27th minute, Vlašić hit a knuckleball from 24 cards out that the Spartak keeper couldn’t quite figure out for the game’s opening goal.
He would secure his second in the waning moments of the game with a difficult breakaway as a defender was on his back the entire time. Why is Vlašić going to be fun to watch for the Croatian national team?
He’s fearless. He will shoot from anywhere on the field. He has a rocket of a right foot. Vlašić is only 22 years old. Grab your popcorn boys and girls!
