The double overhead kick goal: Heverton (Seongnam) v Nagoya Grampus Eight

 The double overhead kick goal: Heverton (Seongnam) v Nagoya Grampus EightAs far as we know (feel free to correct us in the comments), this may well be the first goal ever to be scored with an overhead kick with an overhead kick assist.

Now for the background. South Korean side Seongnam were chasing their AFC Champions League game at Nagoya Grampus, as they were trailing 2-1 with seconds of injury-time left.

A long throw was sent into the Nagoya box, a defensive header later, Brazilian Everton Santos stuck the ball back into the mixer with an overhead kick.

Which was met by fellow Brazilian Heverton, who had already scored once in the match, to connect with an overhead kick which bounced down and nestled in the far corner.

Incredible stuff and it had to be two Brazilians…
