Red Bull Salzburg defender scores rip from 71 yards out (Video)

Some things are just too impressive to ignore.

We’ve all seen it before, the goal from distance that catches a keeper off his line.

Most of the time, however, such audacious attempts are the result of a lofty chip from somewhere in or around half-field. But when Red Bull Salzburg met Schalke this past week, Red Bull center-back Martin Hinteregger had other ideas.

The 20 year old – who had previously never scored at senior level for club or country – collected a 76th minute pass from goalkeeper Alexander Walke, skipped past two defenders and hammered the ball 71 yards into the back of Schalke’s goal. Quite a crack.

And how did Schalke goalkeeper Timo Hildebrand feel about the feat?

It was a “stupid goal,” the 34 year said.
