There are few things better than a soccer wondergoal and the reaction it inspires from overzealous announcers. This example misses the second factor, but there’s a good reason: It was scored by a 13-year-old in Georgia.
As disseminated by Atlanta United’s Twitter account, Atlanta United U-13 midfielder Luke Brennan found his way into the penalty box during a weekend match and produced what may stand up as the most clinical and creative finish of his career. Brennan tracked an in-swinging cross, got just enough separation from his defender and then elevated for a genuine, Cristiano Ronaldo-esque bicycle kick.
Pick that one out!
