Better than Wayne Rooney? Amazing bicycle kick goal

Better than Wayne Rooney? Amazing bicycle kick goal

first_imgDC United may have beaten New England Revolution in the MLS play-offs on Wednesday, but they had to overcome a goal-of-the-season contender to do so.The Washington-based club were 2-1 winners, coming from behind after a stunning strike by 22-year-old Juan Agudelo. Colombian-born forward Agudelo, who plays for the United States’ national team, fired the visitors into the lead when he rose spectacularly to nestle a bicycle kick into the far corner, with a strike reminscent of Wayne Rooney’s ‘best ever’ Premier League goal.To see the opportunity is one thing, but his technique to pull it off was audacious and Agudelo did just that, which you can see in the video above (compared with a Taylor Twellman bicycle kick for the same side, back in 2007). Unfortunately for Agudelo, this was not a match-winner as his side were knocked out of the competition, while DC are through to the semi-final of the Eastern Conference.last_img
