An amateur soccer player, who was brought in to make up the numbers due to a large number of stars dropping out of the Messi & Friends charity game, scored an absolutely incredible bicycle kick yesterday that you have to see to believe.
Thierry Henry chipped a free kick into the box for former college player (and now financial analyst) Matt Eliason to chest the ball before smacking it into the net with a beautiful overhead kick in front of a large crowd in Chicago.
While Eliason continues work as a financial analyst, he’s been practicing playing soccer in the hopes that he can sign a professional contract with a club. So how was this guy overlooked by MLS?!
