Portugal U17s beat Slovenia thanks to a stunning volley from Benfica’s Jose Gomez [Video]

The Portuguese senior team might be in dire straits at the minute but they appear to have a bright future.

When their U17s met Slovenian counterparts in a European Championship qualifier, the match appeared to be heading for a goalless draw.

However, a moment of genius from Portugal substitute Jose Gomez gave the Seleccao a victory that leaves them top of their qualifying group with two wins from two.

Slovenia thought they had cleared a corner but the ball did not touch the ground before it was headed back into the box and Gomez swung his leg around his body to lash it beyond the keeper for a dramatic late win.
