Take a bow Tolo Barcelo, what an amazing goal…. from a goalkeeper!
Playing for Spanish minnows Alcudia — lovely holiday resort in Majorca that I’d highly recommend by the way — and trailing to Mallorca B in the closing stages on Sunday, Barcelo came surging forward for a free kick that was floated in towards the back post.
As the ball soared through the air, the ‘keeper adjusted his body on the fly before launching himself into a perfectly executed bicycle kick to send the home fans wild and grab a 1-1 draw for his side.
Textbook “bike” they really don’t get much better than those.
