WATCH: Throwback to Calhanoglu's 'best ever' free-kick

Hakan Calhanoglu, Hamburg 2014
The Turkey international is well known for his prowess in dead-ball situations, but is this the finest he has ever scored?

One could be forgiven for assuming a Borussia Dortmund line-up that boasted Robert Lewandowski, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in its attacking line would make light work of a 16th-placed Hamburg side on this day back in 2014.

Imagine the surprise that followed, however, when the struggling hosts put three goals past the title-chasing visitors without a response.

It stunned a lot of fans, but the biggest shock of the day came when Hakan Calhanoglu put the game beyond doubt in the 91st minute with a free-kick from near enough the half-way line.

And while the 23-year-old, still far from the prime of his career, is well known for his ability in deal-ball situations, he admitted that it was the finest free-kick he has ever scored.

It's not difficult to see why.
