BBC: Mkhitaryan’s Scorpion Kick Among Football’s Most Memorable Moments of Decade.

The BBC has listed Armenian Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s scorpion kick against Sunderland among football’s most memorable moments from the 2010s.

We take a look back at some of the festive moments that got us all talking during the 2010s. Manchester United 3-1 Sunderland (26 December 2016) Henrikh Mkhitaryan scored 13 goals for Manchester United

Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s Manchester United career was largely uneventful but the Armenian will forever be remembered at Old Trafford for a piece of skill that left Jose Mourinho praising “the beauty of football.”

Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s cross was behind Mkhitaryan but the midfielder rapidly readjusted, arcing his foot to send a barely believable back-heel looping past Jordan Pickford. It was a strike never to be repeated – at least not until Olivier Giroud scored an even better version just five days later.
