Pahang vs South China AA (18.03.2015)

It was the only goal in a 1-0 scoreline in Kuantan but it was a strike worthy of winning any game, as Hong Kong forward Chan Siu Ki's rocket from range zipped past Pahang goalkeeper Khairul Azhan. One touch on the edge of the box to kill the ball with his right foot and then, with little back-lift, a swing of his left foot to send it into the far corner of the net.

Malaysia's Johor Darul Ta'zim have a history of scoring spectacular goals in the AFC Cup and Safee Sali has a strong case to have netted the finest. With the hosts 3-1 up in their opening game of a tournament-winning campaign against India's East Bengal, Safee adjusts his body to get on the end of Nazrin Nawi's lofted delivery and spectacularly sends the ball into the back of the net from 12 yards to wrap up a 4-1 win.
