Anton Egholm is making the rounds on the internet thanks to a legendary goal for his football team FC Holte last week.
The lower-flight team based just north of Copenhagen were playing a Turkish team during a training trip when the 19-year-old high-schooler found him self alone with the opposition’s keeper.
And then … magic happened.
Did he calmly slot it past the keeper? Nay. Did he round the goalie and roll it in with ease? No chance.
After being forced out too wide by the keeper, Egholm turned back and executed a perfect Rabona kick – the method of kicking the ball behind the standing leg – which proceeded to drift over the defenders and into the net off the crossbar.
Egholm, who attends Nærum Gymnasium upper-secondary school, contended modestly afterwards that the magnificent strike was not down to luck.
“To be honest, it was down to pure skill,” Egholm cheekily told Metroxpress newspaper.
FC Holte ended up winning the game 3-0. Egholm, however, looks to have won goal of the season, even beating out goalkeeper Martin Hansen’s sensational strike in August.
