This guy in the American lower leagues scored from in his own half, which you can watch if you click this link

This is Rodrigo Lopez scoring from his own half. Click play above to watch it. I’ll wait. It’s pretty good. Okay, now some background.

Lopez used to play for a bunch of teams, mostly in the lower divisions. Now he’s on Sacramento Republic (coached by Preki). This goal came in a USL game against the Vancouver Whitecaps 2.

Here’s what the commentator said:

“Roro’s gonna take a shot. Oh my! Do you believe it? Un-believe-able. Rodrigo Lopez from midfield with a GOAL.”

Lopez won the 2014 USL MVP award. And then he scored this goal. His mother is probably very proud of him.
