When an old International scores a beauty we would usually say ‘Still got it’ but we never knew that Carlos Marchena ever ‘had it’.
With only 15 league goals during a career that has spanned 15 years, 34 year old Carlos Marchena scored a goal he will never forget against Real Madrid Castilla on Sunday.
14 minutes into the game, Deportivo won a free kick near the corner flag. Whipped in, a teammate then flicked it backwards away from goal.
Capped for Spain 69 times, Marchena literally ran towards it (away from the goal) before hooking an overhead kick into the far corner, past the diving keeper.
His technique isn’t perfect but dayummm.
