Video: Player scores with incredible back-heel volley from outside the box
From the lesser watched Ecuadorian league comes a stroke of genius and an eye-popping moment from Luis "Chucho" Bolanos. The Deportivo Cuenca’s player helped his side to a 3-1 win over Universidad Catolica de Ecuador. The unbelievable volley was his final goal en route to his hat-trick.
Receiving an awkward pass just outside the penalty box, Bolanos used his presence of mind to acrobatically flick the ball with his heel. The ball looped over the goalkeeper who was off his line and it ended in the back of the net, thereby rounding off his hat-trick in a truly stunning fashion.
It’s definitely one of the best goals in 2015 so far and a worthwhile contender for the Goal of the Year.
