The Most Amazing Soccer Goal Of 2010

By Wyatt Earp | April 18, 2010

And it’s only April. Whether you’re a fan of soccer or not – I am – you have to admire this piece of fantastic footwork put on by .

Inter Milan defender Maicon spectacularly broke a 0-0 deadlock in the 75th minute of Friday’s Derby d’Italia against Juventus with a superb display of juggling that he turned into a perfect volley out of the reach of Juve goalkeeper Gigi Buffon. A man up following Momo Sissoko’s red card in the 37th minute, Inter sealed the victory that put them back atop Serie A with a second goal from Samuel Eto’o in stoppage time, sending Juventus fans already demanding a refund on their season tickets into a slightly deeper depression.

After the match, Eto’o was quick to echo the immediate praise for his teammate’s display, saying, “I think Maicon scored the best goal of the season so far.” And it’s easy to agree.

The only thing it lacked was this:

    It’s one of those rare moments in sports when you see a truly amazing play. Reminds me of one time when the Cubs were in Pittsburgh. They were ahead of the Pirates by a run or two in the 4th inning (I think), with bases loaded and Sammy Sosa at bat. He hit the ball and did his trademark hop. I couldn’t believe it at first until I saw the ball go into the seats. I was jumping up and down with excitement at having seen Sosa hit a grand slam. I haven’t seen a grand slam hit since.

    Mark – Agreed. He looked like he was holding back tears of joy.

    Morgan – I’ve never seen one live, but I have been at a Phils game when they won in the bottom of the ninth with a homer. Awesome.
