Clint Dempsey made a valiant but doomed effort at scoring with a scorpion kick against Canada. Meanwhile, during a U-11 match last weekend in Herndon, Va., a kid named Kieran executed a perfect backheel goal off a corner kick with a natural ease.
According to his DT reading coach, Kieran has been trying to pull this off in practice for a while and finally just did it in a match. He should have made this his "drop the mic" moment and celebrated by walking off the pitch with his hands raised above his head and not come back. Like a boss.
