Manchester City's Nolito scores very nice solo goal for Spain in World Cup Qualifying match

He runs weird, dribbles weird, but the goal is nice!

Spain beat Albania 2-0 away from home in a very tough World Cup European Qualifier on Sunday, thanks to goals from Chelsea striker Diego Costa and Manchester City attacker Nolito, who scored a very nice solo goal:

Nolito is a little clunky and weird in the way he runs and dribbles, and he doesn't look very fast or very skilled by any stretch of the immagination, yet he finds a way to go though his defender. The finish is pretty sweet too, and his goal was enough to kill and win the game for La Roja.

Spain's international matches this month are over, which means Nolito and David Silva will return to Manchester City on Monday with four points from two games, no injuries and a goal for Nolito. Perfect!
