by

Tolgay Arslan didn’t need much time to adapt to European soccer.

Arslan scored a fine, curling goal for Besiktas on Thursday in the second half of his team’s UEFA Europa League game against Liverpool. Arslan’s goal tied the round of 32 series at 1-1 on aggregate, sending the teams into extra time at Istanbul’s Ataturk Stadium.

Arslan entered the contest as a second-half substitute and struck gold in the 72nd minute. Winger Gokhan Toure made the initial pass to Demba Ba. The Besiktas hit-man turned provider and back-heeled his pass to Arslan, who curled a shot past goalkeeper Simon Mignolet into the top corner.
