Overhead goal by Coruch this weekend

The Overhead kick which is also called as the bicycle kick, chalaca, chilena, or scissors kick. It is a move in football which is made by throwing the body up into the air, making a shearing movement with the legs to get one leg high overhead to reach the ball (in original head height), which gets kicked backward over the layer’s head. One of the all time greatest footballer Pele described the kick as “not easy to do”. (Wikipedia)

Seeing the stupendous Overhead kick goal by Peter Crouch this weekend, Many might have been surprised, though I wasnt too surprised. Having seen Crouch score in a similar fashion on 2 other ocassions it was very obvious to see him try to score another one similarly and also succeed in scoring the same.

Peter Crouch has always been very ambitious about his Goals. You can see him trying the most impossible goals on the field. These Goals look very nice if converted which is usually like 1 out of 10 times if not less…But when it is not pulled off properly it looks kinda foolish and you may get injured if you have a bad fall while trying the overhead kick.

Just some pics showing some very good overhead kicks and the players who are good at pulling it off..
