Superhero’s name: Brazilian defender Maicon Douglas Sisenando, a.k.a., “Maicon.” Gotta love people (namely, Brazilian footballers) who go by just one name. Shit, it worked for Superman.
Anyway, Maicon’s goal is mind-blowing. It’s the stuff of fiction and video games, not reality. For crying out loud, this whole sequence happens in midair—the ball never hits the ground until it’s in the back of the net.
For some context, the game features Inter Milan vs. Juventus (two elite professional football clubs in the Italian football league, called Serie A). Maicon plays for Inter Milan, more commonly known as Internazionale or Inter.
Before you live another moment a less enlightened and less interesting person, you must see this goal posthaste.
