Former Ghana international Michael Essien hasn’t scored a lot of goals during his distinguished career but – more often than not – when he finds the back of the net it is one for the highlights reel.
While most remember his stunning strike against Arsenal, many forget his superb goal against Barcelona in the 2008/09 UEFA Champions League season.
Essien’s stunning left-footed volley nine minutes into their second-leg clash against Barcelona looked to have booked the Blues spot in the final, but the visitors would emerge victorious (1-1 on aggregate) at Stamford Bridge following Andrés Iniesta’s dramatic equaliser.
