Astonishing double-overhead kick goal

World of Sport

An overhead kick goal is always something special. So, how about an overhead kick set up by another overhead kick?

And what if that overhead kick, set up by another overhead kick, were scored in the third minute of stoppage time?

That is the quite incredible scenario that played out for Korean side Seongnam in their Asian Champions League match away to Nagoya Grampus of Japan.

Trailing 2-1 in the dying seconds, Seongnam saw an attack foiled as Grampus cleared the ball to the edge of the box.

What happened next was truly unique, as Brazilian Everton Santos produced an agile volley to hook the ball over his head and back into the danger area.

Then his countryman Heverton, surrounded by opponents, produced another bicycle kick to power the ball into the net past dumbstruck Grampus goalkeeper Seigo Narazaki.

It was Heverton's second goal of the game, and it was enough to earn his side a hard-earned point in the opening match of the tournament's group stage.
