Odaine Sinclair, a forward on FC Tucson, converted this spectacular bicycle kick Friday night, and then told reporters this:
I’m stunned. I’m stunned as everybody is. It popped up and I saw it. I just went for it. I didn’t know it went in until the crowd started cheering. Then I saw my teammates running. I’m pretty stoked right now.
Pretty stoked is probably an understatement. In a non-World Cup year, this goal would get strong global love as a Goal of the Year candidate. Depending on what happens in Brazil, it still might.
