Video: Javi Gomez Scores Outrageous Bicycle Kick Goal

Spanish Segunda Division B

Javi Gomez

Socuellamos, Spanish – Sometimes several things need to happen in order to have one of these magical moments to occurred. For Javi Gomez, player of Spanish Segunda Division B UD Socuellamos, scored one of the most magnificent, extraordinary bicycle kick goals to have been ever scored.

Both UD Socuellamos and CD Toledo are challenging for a play-off and promotion push in the Spanish Segunda Division B and were fighting out what had been a scoreless scrap at the Estadio Pauquito Jimenez.

That was until a moment of inspiration from 33-year-old striker Gomez, whose goal will be remembered and will be placed into the pantheon of long-range bicycle kick scores alongside Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Marco van Basten, Wayne Rooney, Trevor Sinclair and Rivaldo.

Gomez, a 33-year-old striker who already had 13 goals to his name this season, jumped to control a long ball on his chest 20 minutes from time before launching himself into the air and scoring a remarkable overhead kick that no goalkeeper on earth could have set himself for.

Gomez’s 14th goal of the season moved Socuellamos above Toledo and into the play-off places with just three games left.

Javi Gomez’s goal will, without a doubt, be included in the FIFA Puskas Award for the most beautiful goal of the year.
