Liverpool's Dirk Kuyt Scores Bizarre Goal From Sunderland Free Kick

You may have seen some bizarre goals in your time, but this one has got to be in the top ten. And, without a doubt, it’s got to be the easiest goal that Liverpool’s Dirk Kuyt has ever scored.

In the first half between Liverpool and Sunderland, Dirk Kuyt committed a foul which resulted in a free kick for Sunderland. But Sunderland’s Michael Turner rolled the ball back to goalkeeper Simon Mignolet for him to take the free kick. Turner turned his back on the ball after he rolled it back. But Fernando Torres used a sharp bit of intuition by realizing that when Turner rolled the ball back to Mignolet, the ball was now live. Torres ran the ball towards the goalkeeper and passed it to Kuyt for the Dutchman to score the easiest goal of his career.
