Rafael Van Der Vaart's Scissors-Kick Goal for Hamburg vs. Nuremberg Was Amazing

Mark PattersonUK Staff WriterOctober 7, 2013

Rafael van der Vaart's Hamburg side have been struggling of late, but that all changed on Sunday when they romped past Nuremberg 5-0 away from home in the Bundesliga.

And it was van der Vaart himself who started it all off with an extraordinary scissors kick, set up by Heiko Westermann.

The Dutchman hit his shot while both feet were in the air and belted it with such force that Nuremberg goalkeeper Raphael Schafer could not prevent it going in.

The result saw Hamburg leapfrog Nuremberg in the table on goal difference after eight games of the Bundesliga campaign.
