Watch: Alejandro Camargo may have scored soccer's goal of the year

Monday December 5th, 2016

The goal of 2016 may come from the Chilean Primera División.

Universidad de Concepción midfielder Alejandro Camargo took advantage of the keeper being off line on a clearance by goalkeeper Miguel Angel Pinto and volleyed it back into the net, which secured the 3–1 victory for Camargo's squad.

“The coach told us Pinto was always playing in advance of his goal so I closed my eyes and hit it,” Camargo told reporters after the game.

Very reminiscent of Dejan Stankovic's first-minute goal vs. Schalke in 2011.
