VIDEO: Astonishing Nacho goal is better than Real Madrid boss Zidane's UCL final volleyPublished October 27, 2016
It was better than Zinedine Zidane’s goal in the Champions League final in 2002. The Real Madrid boss said that himself. Nacho doesn’t score often and after seeing his goal against Cultural Leonesa, we have to ask why. If he can score a goal like that then he would surely be decent at finishing one-on-ones. We’re getting sidetracked.
The Spain international was running into the box when he decided to hit a shot first time after a cross from the right. He turned his body and flew into the air, unleashing a vicious scissor kick that connected insanely well with the ball. The Leonesa goalkeeper had no chance. It was the sixth goal in a 7-1 beatdown.
It was only the early rounds of the Copa Del Rey but Zidane thinks that the context doesn’t matter when the technique is so perfect. He reckons it will go down in history and that it was better than his famous volley against Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League final in 2002. He said: “What Nacho did is not normal.
“I’m happy for him. It’s a goal that will go down in history. It is better than mine from ‘La Novena’ [Madrid’s ninth Champions League title triumph].”
See the goal that everyone’s talking about below.
