Watch A Soccer Player Score Directly From A Corner Kick…Twice! (Video)
FC Metalist’s Cristian Villagra Scores From 70-Yards Out (Video)
Are soccer players getting better, or are goalies simply getting much worse? That is the question I am left to ask after watching yet another kick from over 50-yards out find the back of the net. This time it occurred during a friendly between Ukranian club FC Metalist Kharkiv and Russia’s Dynamo Moscow, as Metalist’s defender Cristian Villagra caught the Moscow keeper wandering out of his goal, and booted a 70-yard free kick over his head and into the back of the net.
You can check out the goal in the video below. Our apologies for the background music, but it was either this, or Nickleback. I think we made the right decision.
