This clip comes from the opening day of the season 1-1 draw between Tokyo Verdy and Cerezo Osaka in the J. League 2nd division, in which Diego Forlan scored a stunning equaliser.
Shaolin Soccer is something of a cult movie in which martial arts and football are combined to create a brand new sport.
The superb assist is by Tokyo Verdy’s Masaki Chugo, setting up Alan Pinheiro to score the opener in the 1-1 draw.
Despite being on the floor, Chugo beat one man before crossing for his teammate.
