Did two players score the first goal of the Premier League season?


Hull welcomed Leicester City to the newly-named KCOM Stadium for the Premier League's opener, and while at times the first-half was tepid the season's first goal might have been a Premier League first.

After a smart save from Kasper Schmeichel both Abel Hernandez and Adama Diomande attempted a bicycle kick from close range, with both seemingly making contact with the ball before it ended up in the net.

It caused a lot of confusion.

The goal has been compared to a scene from obscure Japanese anime Captain Tsubasa.

Some even thought the finish was pretty relevant, given that the Olympics is currently going on.

Diomande was eventually credited with the goal, but that didn't dampen anybody's spirits.

Nor did it stop the bookies from paying out on Hernandez as first goalscorer!

The Premier League is back!
