A Bicycle Kick Made For Two
A tandem bicycle kick to score the winning goal? Two men, one ball, one amazing goal!
The goal was scored in a recent Argentinean Primera Division match between Gimnasia La Plata and Boca Juniors. After the ball deflected off a Boca defender, Gimnasia’s Sebastian Romero and Marco Perez both executed bicycle kicks at the same time to score a goal. Trying to figure the odds on both players executing overhead kicks in unison to put the ball in the back of the net is enough to make your head hurt, especially considering Perez had to scramble to his feet in order to get there.
As Planet Soccer report, Gimnasia La Plata ended up winning the match 1-0 and instead of the goal being credited with half a goal each, Perez was the one given sole credit and upon closer inspection, it looks like he at least got more of the ball than Romero?
Plus, he’s the one who celebrated the goal first, which, as any football player worth anything knows, is nine-tenths of the law!
