ZIAN Flemming has received significant praise for his stunning strike in Millwall’s 1-1 draw against Rotherham United.
The Dutchman had shown flashes of brilliance in previous games but was yet to really show supporters what he was capable of until Wednesday’s match in South Yorkshire.
After being set up by Billy Mitchell, he curled an astonishing long-range strike into the top corner with his weaker left foot, helping the Lions secure a crucial point on the road.

Even Rotherham’s official twitter account described Flemming’s strike as “stunning”, although they went on to highlight that goalkeeper Viktor Johansson was able to tip his second-half free kick onto the crossbar to help the Millers avoid defeat.
