[Soccer] Ronaldinho fulfils boyhood dream

Recommended Posts

Did anyone catch this goal yesterday? It was outrageous, definitely one for the archives.

MADRID, Nov 26 (Reuters) - Ronaldinho said that he fulfilled a childhood dream by wrapping up Barcelona's 4-0 win over Villarreal on Saturday with his spectacular overhead kick three minutes from time.

Lurking in the Villarreal area, the Brazilian controlled a lofted pass from Xavi with his chest, swivelled round with his back to goal and then fired a stunning bicycle kick over the head of keeper Mariano Barbosa and high into the net.

"I didn't really think too much about it because it just happened on the spur of the moment," said the 26-year-old who had scored Barca's opener from the penalty spot.

"When I controlled the ball it stood up just right and everything else worked out perfectly.

"Ever since I was a young boy I've dreamed of scoring a goal like that.

It was a great goal!

It is funny because everyone is saying Ronaldinho is playing crap, but he is the leading scorer in La Liga this season and is still out of this world. Imagine if he was "on form" :p.
