Watch this goal from El Salvador … it’s Maradona-esque!

Dare we call this goal, Diego Maradona-esque?

In El Salvador, José Otoniel Salinas slalomed his way through seven challenges en route to YouTube glory over the weekend for Atlético Marte.

It was vaguely reminiscent, at least, of Maradona’s famous goal for Argentina – among the most famous of all time in world soccer, actually – back in 1986. Obviously, this one doesn’t carry the same World Cup weight. But it’s great goal and a good “watch.”

Enjoy. (HT Jon Arnold for the clip.)

    “Maradona-esque!”?? With all due respect, i see more bad defense than anything else. Again, ES is not that high football standards to look at; Otherwise, ask Klinsmann’s opinion.

      When you watch Maradona beat the entire team, that looks like bad defense too. Great moves make good defenders look terrible.

        Argentina/Maradona vs England at a WC game vs unknown/unknown football clubs from a country who has not been able to break to a WC Hexagonal phase and let alone make it to a WC since 1982 is not much to compare it to. Either way, nice goal scored against a lame unknown defense football club.

    Knock it off, buddy. You got a point, bring it up, but the tone of it sounds you are looking for the author’s or anyone’s attention. P(S)T’s authors are kind and patient with some of you just looking for errors just to expose them out as if they know nothing and that is not nice to say the least.

    More reminiscent of the Brek Shea run and goal from a few years ago but I get the point. No matter the level it was entertaining and worth watching! Thanks for sharing.
