Facing away from goal and swinging his leg in instictive madness, Brazilian futsal player Marcio scored with an audacious backheel lob in a match between Marechal Rondon and Jaragua.
The Marechal Rondon keeper tossed the ball to Marcio, who was on the other half of the pitch, catching Jaragua's keeper well outside his area. After the ball took one bounce, Marcio casually launched a backheel lob that soared over the reatreating keeper and into the net.
Though Marcio celebrated as if he could do this sort of thing in his sleep, he later declared that it was at least one of his greatest goals. From the Guardian:
“I was fortunate to catch the ball well, scoring a great goal,” Márcio told SporTV. “It is certainly one of the best goals of my career.”
