Watch: Texas U-16 soccer player scores 35-yard free kick goal

Monday February 15th, 2016

We may have found another nominee for play of the month.

This comes from Texas, where U-16 soccer player Jake Bates scored one of the more incredible free kick goals you will see. Bates ran up and struck the ball on goal from 35 yards out, and managed to find the top right corner of the net.

The goal put the Texas Rush up 2–0 on Lonestar FC.
