WATCH: 45-yard screamer scored in the Japanese J1 League

We think Jordan Henderson has lost out on goal of the weekend.

The Liverpool captain’s strike against Chelsea on Friday was impressive, but was put in the shade by this stunning goal from the J1 League in Japan.

Tsukasa Shiotani put the ball in the net with a superb right-footed shot from more than 40 yards away, to open the scoring for Sanfrecce Hiroshima against Sagan Tosu.

The poor 'keeper never stood a chance.

Sanfrecce Hiroshima went on to win the game 3-2.
