Naturally, when Christian Benteke plundered a long range volley into the top corner of the net yesterday, Twitter exploded with excitement.
Comically, many used the goal to mock those assuming Benteke could only score with headers from crosses, while others simply expressed delight at the thunderbolt!
Here’s what the internet had to say when the 24-year-old’s strike nearly broke Swindon’s net…
What an absolute bullet of a header by Benteke.. https://t.co/tycQrPPDew

Hopefully Benteke’s goal yesterday shows that he isn’t just a ‘big man’. Wonderful skill. #LFC

If Benteke does that kind of thing in real life then Brendan will be a god for that signing. If.
