Written By Jacobs Dunga

More Details

Sampdoria midfielder Abdelhamid Sabiri has put himself on the world map by scoring a goal from almost the halfway line.


The 25 year old was featuring for his team against Turkish side Besiktas in a preseason friendly when a ball fell to his feet which he immediately played a long one over the head of the goalkeeper.

The Moroccan born former Germany U-21 international moved to Sampdoria on loan from Ascoli in the January transfer window before making the move permanent this summer.

He scored three goals in fourteen league appearances last term but his goal against the Turkish side that put his team 1-0 up will go down as one of the best in his career.

Besiktas through Wout Weghorst in the 65th minute restored parity in the game and there were to be no more goals as it ended one all between the sides.

Sabiri started his career in Germany and featured for a number of sides before his sojourn to England with Huddersfield Town from where he returned to Germany with Paderborn. His first love to Italy was in 2020 when he joined Ascoli in the Italian Serie B.
