    WHOA. As in a big Keanue Reeves in Point Break WHOA.

  5. Chris says:

    What’s even better is, judging by the video, it appears he kicked it in from the early 80s.

  6. Tim F. says:

    Wow! Thanks for sharing this.

  7. AC says:

    It’s like a mixture of soccer and an 80’s action movie!…Freaking awesome!

  8. Stephen says:

    Clearly “must see” was not overstated this go around. Amazing!

  9. Mark says:

    this is probably attempted on a regular basis in rec leagues around the country. but to actually score, and from outside the 18 … not too shabby.

  10. fischy says:

    Cap him.

  13. Johnny Bornstunk says:

    you don’t think. it’s a natural reaction for those that possess the talent.

  14. Johnny Bornstunk says:

    ban him.

  15. Johnny Bornstunk says:

    This guy has nothing on Adam Cristman.

  16. Hincha Tim says:

    Playing at 11,000 feet tends to make you do things like that 😉

  20. otergod says:

    in all honesty, it’s any Keanue Reeves movie…

  21. TomG says:

    Meh. I made a shot like that once. Granted, it was in a dream and might be more difficult in reality. I was also 9 feet tall with blue skin.

  22. Bruce Arena says:

    No thank you. He’s a vital part of my club.

  23. leftcoastmetro says:

    Someone please show me a better goal ever made in any league since the creation of the movie camera. I’m coming up blank.

  24. leftcoastmetro says:

    Oh and FIFA, please give this relative nobody from the Bolivian league the goal of the year.

  25. Joamiq says:

    Haha. Well done

  26. Jimmy Bobo says:

    Obviously, this guy should (from now on) be nicknamed “the scorpion.”

  27. SilverRey says:

    He had already overrun the ball, so this was really his only choice.
    Personally impressed with the strength of the shot – totally leaves the keeper in the dust!

  31. abc says:

    Not just from the Bolivian league, but from the Bolivian second division!

  32. abc says:

    If only Clint Dempsey had scored when he tried a scorpion kick during the Gold Cup last year…

  33. Raymon says:

    Riot police in full riot gear outside the players entrance! Football is not about life and death, it’s more important than that!

  34. Mickey says:

    Chuck Norris could do it. But Mr. Norris is the only other one. Good job Erlan!

  35. Edwin in LA says:

    This better win FIFA Goal of the Year, and if it doesn’t and for some reason a magical Cristiano, RVP, Messi or Gomez goal wins…this better be in the Top 3 Semifinalist!

    Sick how he did it, goalie never had a chance because the play that could of involved him on that cross was virtually over when the ball was crossed behind him and all the sudden he pulls one out of the hat?
