Beach soccer is apparently a thing (sanctioned by FIFA, too!). And apparently qualifying for the 2013 World Cup is currently in progress. That’s where the outstanding goal you see above took place (keep your eye on the upper left of the video). In this match between the Netherlands and Norway (two countries renowned for their beaches), Dutch beach bro Daryl Rawidjan, next to the touch line with a defender draped over him, flipped the ball to himself twice and then bicycle kicked it into the net, resulting in a truly remarkable goal for the Dutch and a totally demoralizing one for the Norwegian goalkeeper.
As awesome as that was, it’s still not as good as Wayne Rooney’s spectacular bicycle kick goal against Manchester City.
