One-Legged Soccer Player Scores Amazing Scissor Kick Goal (Video)

kid with one leg scores amazing soccer goal

I’ve seen a lot of really great soccer goals in my day. In fact, I’ve seen some pretty great goals already this season. But I don’t ever recall seeing a goal quite like the one you’re about to see.

It was scored by a kid named Nico Calabria. He’s a high school junior who plays on the Concord-Carlisle H.S. boys soccer team in Concord, Massachusetts.

So what makes this goal so special? Well, Nico was born with only one leg. And he doesn’t take the field with a prosthesis, either. He plays on crutches against able-bodied boys.

So are you ready to see something totally amazing? Good. Check out Calabria’s scissor kick goal from this past Wednesday.

Yeah, you read that right. A scissor kick goal.

I don’t know about you, but that’s the best goal scored by a one-legged soccer player I’ve ever seen. Does Nico Calabria kick ass, or what?

And in case you were wondering, this isn’t some terrible soccer team Nico is playing on either. They won this game by a score of 9-0 to improve to 4-0 on the season.
