Brazilian Midfielder Nilton Scores an Almost Impossible to Believe Golazo


Here’s goal, nay, a golazo from Cruziero midfielder Nilton from a recent Brazilian league game against Botafogo.

I’m not even sure how to try to describe the backheel, scissoring, semi-scorpion kick volley he pulled off. Suffice to say, if Nilton — or anyone — tried to do that again on purpose they probably wouldn’t be able to pull it off.

Perfect technique or dumb luck? Probably a combination of the two.
