Gagliardo28 earns his first career award for best goal of Matchday 8

The Celtic FC newcomer’s successful shot led to his recognition with the €10,000 prize

The late addition to Celtic FC’s roster, Gagliardo28, was recognized with the best goal award after just his fourth matchday competing in the eFootball.Pro IQONIQ leagueHe accomplished the award-worthy shot in minute 90’ of the first game in the Scottish club’s fixture against FC Barcelona. The goal was the equalizer Celtic FC needed to avoid a loss in Game 1, ultimately producing the 2-2 result that allowed them to take one point to the league table by Matchday 8’s conclusion. 

The play began with the ball in Scottish club captain Jorcha’s possession on Celtic FC’s side of the field. He passed the ball up to PataNegra7, who was making his first appearance in eFootball.Pro IQONIQ since Matchday 4. From just outside of the center circle, he then sent the ball to Gagliardo28 who was waiting in the middle of the Blaugrana team’s side of the field. The ball then was put back in Jorcha’s possession, just outside of the penalty arc. With a direct heel pass, he sent the ball back to PataNegra7 who was inside the penalty area on the left side. Narrowly avoiding ALEX GRD’s defense, he managed to send the ball to Gagliardo28 who was perfectly positioned outside of the goal area to make a clear shot past THE PALMA’s goal keeping efforts and into the net.

Gagliardo28 has managed to stand out in eFootball.Pro IQONIQ since his league debut in Matchday 5. Since he joined the competition on March 13th, he scored two goals in each of the first three matchdays he participated in, and one in the most recent matchday which earned him the €10,000 award. Although Celtic FC’s run for Knockout Stage qualification ended with the eighth matchday, Gagliardo28’s goal exemplified the impressive teamwork the Scottish club displayed throughout the season, and the type of PES skills fans witness from all professional players in the league.
