Comments on: Rooney strike — wonder goal or shinpad special? http://blogs.reuters.com/soccer/2011/02/14/rooney-strike-wonder-goal-or-shinpad-special/ World Soccer views and news Tue, 29 Nov 2016 14:52:48 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: giridharnair http://blogs.reuters.com/soccer/2011/02/14/rooney-strike-wonder-goal-or-shinpad-special/comment-page-1/#comment-356939 Fri, 18 Feb 2011 14:59:18 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/soccer/?p=18127#comment-356939 Sorry, I beg to differ. First of all , when you execute a bicycle kick rarely it is possible to play with boots and in fact using the shin gives more power and control considering your gravity defying posture at the time of execution.. It’s more a question of perfect anticipation, timing,extraordinary reflexes and superior fitness and of course lot of luck.. but then because it is very hard/ rare to witness a perfect beicycle kick makes it all the more beautiful and brilliant just like Jhonty Rhodes’ flying catches at point .. you miss most and those that stick attain legendary status instantly.. To conclude , I feel it was one of the most brilliant goals ever right at the top few.. Also spare a thought for the lesser known foothabllers who may have done this at various occassions albeit not at the international level and hence missed glory.. At least I myself knew of an Indian player IM Vijayan who used to scored goals via B-kicks and that too in spectacular fashion, quite a few times.. in international and regional games.. Like that many across continents..

I know I am biased and I don’t care.

(France and Italy and Germany certainly)
