the amazing goal
A goal caught the eye in this game and went viral. It is the one made by Atiba Hutchinson, at 66, to open the scoring. The game was a cross from Larin, his teammate finished the goal in a ‘popcorn’, the ball went to the post and on the rebound it hit the same player in the body and went to the goal, where the goalkeeper threw himself trying to recover the ball.
There were moments of confusion, to the point that the opposing goalkeeper was about to take the goal, when the referee endorsed the goal.
