Overhead kicks are a rarity in football, but if a player manages to score one then it already becomes a contender for Goal of the Season.
So while some players do practice this on the training ground, Chelsea star Willian thought it might be interesting to try this, well, in the waters of a swimming pool – and in to a basketball hoop.
With the January arrival of another right winger in Juan Cuadrado, Willian could be feeling the pressure, so he’s tried to convince manager Jose Mourinho of his abilities in a rather unorthodox way.
Yes, the feat was incredibly impressive, but you have to wonder how many times he tried to get it in the basket before he was successful. Surely he didn’t do it at the first time of asking?
But if you’re a true fan of overhead kicks, maybe it’s time to give the sport of Takraw a try.
