The Backheel Goal!

The United Arab Emirates crushed Lebanon 6-2 in a friendly on Sunday. So maybe in an effort to make things interesting or maybe just because he simply does not conform to acceptable standards of penalty kicks, U.A.E’s Awana Diab’s setup seemed like any other for a penalty, but as he ran up to the ball, he stopped, turned around and backheeled the it toward the goal. Stunned by the audacity, madness and nerve it takes to try to score a penalty with your back to the goal, the keeper just stood and watched as the ball trickled into the net.

Ironically, Diab is up for a disciplinary action. So much for the goal and the disrespect.
