Video: Jonathan Soriano scores from halfway line

Posted by Chris Wright

The Europa League came back to life Thursday night, and it's probably fair to say that Red Bull Salzburg pulled off the shock result of the evening, putting three unanswered goals past Ajax at the Amsterdam Arena.

Having already put the Austrians in front from the penalty spot after 14 minutes, Jonathan Soriano returned to complete the scoring in the 35th minute when the former Barcelona B striker crossed the halfway line, looked up, saw Ajax keeper Jasper Cillessen hovering off his line, and decided to take a chance -- burying an exquisite 55-yard golazo to flesh out Salzburg's comfortable winning margin.

If we had a cap, we'd definitely doff it.
