WASHINGTON DC, October 1 (RIA Novosti)
A 17-year-old U.S. high school soccer player scored a split-second, over-the-head goal that would have been difficult for almost any player. But Nico Calabria has only one leg.
The scissor kick feat was Calabria’s first goal as a new member of the varsity team at Concord-Carlisle High School in Massachusetts, and his coach posted the video to YouTube after the September 19 game.
