Ivan Perišić's first goal for Hajduk showcased his unique ability to play with both feet, proving why he remains a formidable player in football.
During an away match against Istra 1961, Ivan Perišić scored his inaugural goal for Hajduk in a truly magical manner, reaffirming his status as a unique football talent.

One of the main reasons Perišić remains an unsolvable puzzle for opposing defenses is his ability to play equally well with both feet. Although he typically operates on the left side, his ambidexterity in shooting and crossing makes him an exceptional figure in the football world.

This was evident against Istra when he scored a beautiful volley goal with his left foot. After Diallo headed the ball back, Perišić took a stunning first-time shot with his left foot, sending the ball into the far corner.

This goal was undoubtedly one of the season's highlights in the Croatian championship, and it's a pity it came so late for Hajduk. For Perišić, this match marked his first start since the end of August, when he was still with Tottenham, and he managed to score immediately.

The last time he scored was in March 2023, as a player for Tottenham against Southampton.

In the meantime, the experienced winger went through a recovery period from a severe knee injury. Today's goal demonstrated that the toughest times are behind him. Perišić's stunning goal and his return to the starting lineup against Istra are great news for Zlatko Dalić, as the 35-year-old is a confirmed participant for the Euros.
