FFA Cup 2019 Goal of the Year: Final update
He was the star of the FFA Cup Final 2019 and Al Hassan Toure’s first-half strike has taken out the best goal of Adelaide United’s resounding win.
After we asked fans to tell us their favourite goal from the Reds’ 4-0 win over Melbourne City, Toure’s clever finish at the near post came out on top.
Toure scored the Reds’ opener as they went on to record a huge win at a heaving Coopers Stadium to ice back-to-back FFA Cup triumphs.
The classy teenager was sent clear but a precise through-ball by right-back Ryan Strain.
Toure showed great awareness to spot City goalkeeper Dean Bouzanis leave too much space at his near post, arrowing in a low shot to give the Reds the lead.
