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.
The video has spread like wildfire, getting more than 1.3 million views and making it to the number one spot on an ESPN SportsCenter Top Ten list.
Calabria was born without a right leg and uses crutches to get around the field. He’s also a standout multi-sport athlete for the school.
