Match: Cote d'Ivoire v. Japan
Competition: World Cup Group Stage
Ground: Arena Pernambuco, Recife, Brazil

Cote d'Ivoire had the last laugh on Saturday night in Recife, but this left-footed blast from Keisuke Honda has to be one of the early goals of the tournament. The AC Milan man frees himself up with his first touch, and makes no mistake with this finish into the top corner. The keeper puts a hand up, but that's more of a wave goodbye than it is an effort at making a save.
