Venezuelan starlet Yohandry Orozco has shot to fame with an astonishing goal in an U20 World Cup qualifying match.
The 19-year-old picked up the ball from inside his own half and jinked past no less than seven opponents before blasting a long-range rocket into the top corner of the net.
The wonder goal, which has garnered almost 52,000 views on YouTube in two days, drew Venezuela level with Peru, and also earned the attacking midfielder comparisons to Diego Maradona’s stunning strike against England in the 1986 World Cup quarter-finals.
Orozco, who has already been capped by his country at senior level, currently plays for Venezuelan top-flight club Zulia. However, based on this piece of brilliant play, it seems like it won’t be long before he makes it to one of the world’s top leagues.
