Watch: Gremio U-14 player scores scorpion kick golazo

Thursday May 5th, 2016

Thomas Luciano may go on to great things as a soccer player eventually, but it'll be hard to top what he did on Thursday. 

Luciano, a U-14 player for Brazilian club Gremio, scored on an audacious scorpion kick against Novo Hamburgo. Reacting to a rebound from a shot that hit the post, Luciano, facing the goal, measured the rebound and faced a choice. He could either try to leap and head it home, or opt for the spectacular. He did the latter, whipping his leg up from behind and connecting with his right foot to get his name on the scoresheet and highlight reels everywhere.
