New Everton man Gylfi Sigurdsson scored quite the beauty on Thursday, hitting a ridiculous 40-yard shot from midfield against Hajduk Split in Europa League action.

Everton fans waited all summer for Sigurdsson to arrive from Swansea City, who will miss him and his ability to make something out of nothing — such as this.

The Toffees held on to advance on aggregate and secure their place in the Europa League group stage, where it will face Lyon, Atalanta and Apollon.

The Iceland star will surely continue to make their lives easier from here.
