Former Manchester United and Chelsea target Benjamin Sesko recreates Marco van Basten’s iconic Euro 1988 final goal with stunning volley against Swede

Ex-Manchester United and Chelsea target Benjamin Sesko proved why he’s so highly touted with a stunning volley for Slovenia against Sweden. The 19-year-old striker snubbed interest from the Premier League this summer to agree a move from Red Bull Salzburg to sister club RB Leipzig in 2023. Sesko has lit up the Nations LeagueGetty 𝖡𝖤𝖭𝖩𝖠𝖬𝖨𝖭 𝖲𝖤𝖲𝖪𝖮 𝖮𝖧 𝖬𝖸 𝖦𝖮𝖣! pic.twitter.com/bqI6YpuULX— EuroFoot (@eurofootcom) September 27, 2022 Sesko is spending the remainder of this season with the Austrian side before his reported £20million switch to the Bundesliga next term. And that is already looking like a snip for Leipzig, with Sesko scoring an outrageous goal to open the scoring against Sweden. The young forward allowed a long ball over the top from teammate Petar Stojanovic to come over his shoulder before he unleashed a thumping Robin van Perise-esque volley first-time into the far corner. Sesko’s third goal in as many games for his country is all the more impressive considering it came with his supposed weaker foot. Sweden hit back through Emil Forsberg but Slovenia’s sensation remains the names on many peoples lips. However, the likes of United and Chelsea will have to wait a little longer if they want to reignite their attempts to sign him.

But Sesko revealed in an interview in 2021 that some of his teammates believe he’s better than the Norway powerhouse. “Such comparisons motivate me and give me energy,” Sesko said as quoted by GOAL when asked about being likened to Haaland. “They do not represent pressure. I will listen and learn so I can be even better than he is. “My team-mates at the club tell me that Haaland and I are very similar, especially in terms of speed. Most of them even tell me that I’m better than him!”
