Former Nigeria U-17 star midfielder Jack Ipalibo continued his fine for the U-18 of Villarreal with a well taken free kick goal in their 8-0 win over A.D.M Lorqui yesterday.

Ipalibo scored the last goal for his team in the 8-0 drubbing by striking a free kick from 30 metres out into the net of the opponent, which left their goalkepper stranded.

The 18 year old posted the video of the goal on his facebook page, and immediately became a hit on the internet with most people sharing the video on their wall.

Since joining Villarreal in the summer, the midfielder who is largely referred to as Nigeria Yaya Toure in some quarters has emerged as one of the integral team of their U-18 team.

Although he is yet to make his debut for the first team, he got a run out with the B team in their friendly game against Nigerian side Rivers United, who are coincidentally from his state of origin in Nigeria.
