Golazo! Munir lobs keeper from inside his own half as Barcelona win Youth Champions League [Video]

Amid all the ‘end of an era’ talk, Barcelona have just won the UEFA Youth League, the younger brother of the Champions League (how most teams would love their problems).
Barcelona’s U-19s beat their Benfica counterparts 3-0 to claim the continent’s youth crown.
And the icing on the cake was added just before the final whistle, as Munir El Haddad – known simply as Munir at Can Barça – lobbed the keeper from inside his own half.
Picking the ball up 10 yards inside his own half, Munir looked up, and with the game won and nothing to lose, had a pop from the edge of the centre circle.
Such audacity, and perfectly executed, as the keeper haplessly scurried back to no avail.
