Happiness everywhere as Enner Valencia scores first goal at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
The former West Ham United and Everton striker took advantage of a dodgy defending by the Qatari defence to head home from close range. The Ecuador skipper who celebrated with his teammates saw his effort ruled out after a VAR review.
Ecuador’s skipper Enner Valencia scored the first goal of the Fifa World Cup 2022 from a penalty kick. Valencia was taken down in the box and it was a clear penalty.
Valencia finishes calmly down to his right, sending the goalkeeper the other way to put his team up 1-0! A deserved start.
It was his second goal in the match after the first one got cancelled due to offside.
Caicedo passes it to Estrada from the centre-line and he lets Valencia through, who is causing all sorts of troubles! He tries to get past the goalkeeper, who tumbles him down! PENALTY!
