Soccer is the world’s most popular sport. It draws in crowds upwards of 60,000 people on a nightly basis. The 2015-16 soccer season is just barely underway and a German soccer game Thursday night might have just provided us with the goal of the century even in its early stages.
Deadspin shared a video of last night’s Soccer Dynamo league match-up between Dresden and Erfurt. With the former in the lead 1-0, Erfurt looked to tie the game up midway through the second half.
Carsten Kammlott took a pass from a teammate just inside the box and nailed what I am calling the most incredible goal I have ever seen. It is truly one of those goals that you must see to believe.
Wow. I didn’t know who Carsten Kammlott was before seeing this video and I will probably never hear about him again, unless he does this of course. However, I don’t know how he made this goal and frankly, I don’t even know if he even meant to kick it like that.
Either way, it gave soccer fans, whether die-hard or casual, something to absolutely go nuts over. How did this not make the Sportscenter Top 10?
