This goal was scored in the final weeks of 2012, however we’ve only just discovered it and it’s incredible.
The footage comes from a youth game in Greece between AO Giannina and Atromitos.
AO Giannina won the match 6-1, and they began the match in jaw-dropping style scoring in a move directly from kick-off.
The manner of the goal was far from straightforward.
AO Giannina’s kids (orange) showed the temperament of seasoned-pros by playing a series of 1-2 in their own half straight from the whistle. Without losing possession the ball travelled all the way back to the Giannina keeper, who tricked his way past an opponent and kept the uniterrupted sequence ticking over.
Eventually, after around 20 passes, Giannina built an attack down the left hand side. A shimmy from their winger, followed by a couple of precise passes opened the space for the centre-forward, and the striker applied the clinical finish to the world class move.
Sit back for one of the all-time great team goals from AO Giannina’s youth team.
