Plenty of Celtic fans are continuing to delight in Jota’s sumptuous assist to play in Kyogo Furuhashi for his opening goal in Celtic’s most recent Europa League victory.
The official Europa League Twitter account took to the social media platform to share footage of the long-ranged pass that found the Japanese hitman, with fans of all colours and stripes taking to the comments to pour praise on the piece of individual brilliance.
However, it was the response from Celtic fans that as particularly salient in the replies as they were keen to praise Jota’s name to the heavens as he continued to excel in green and white.
What have some Celtic fans been saying in response?
“When Kyogo collects the pass, listen carefully and you can hear the fans simultaneously shout “what a ball!””
”That pass had everything you want as a striker. Just enough height, Backspin, and perfectly weighted making the control by Furuhashi much easier than it would have been had the ball just been driven. Also Helps when you have pillows for feet.”
“Control and finish were what that pass deserved. A sign of things to come. Both Players Big Ange identified and signed. The board must try their best to release money in January to give Big Man a right go at winning the league”
“Every angle AND on repeat. How is anyone going to get any work done today?”
“We need more angles and more Slo-mo’s please. Can we maybe even not just get a special dvd release of this goal played over and over? I’m taking this too far ….”
”Two brilliant footballers combine for a perfect goal. What a magnificent pass on the run from Jota and the touch and finish from Kyogo was top class.”
Celtic’s notably more common front three of Liel Abada, Furuhashi and Jota looks to be increasingly potent as recent games – including this European clash – have shown.
With the club retaining an option to buy Jota outright, fans will be hoping the club will take up the option sooner rather than later.
