17-Year-Old Orlando City Forward Scores Breathtaking Overhead Kick

Orlando City U-17/18 forward Alejandro Pereira hit a sensational bicycle kick at the Development Academy Playoffs.

Seventeen-year-old Orlando City SC U-17/18 forward Alejandro Pereira put the exclamation point on a year that’s had its fair share of incredibly acrobatic goals with this breathtaking overhead kick at the 2017 U.S. Soccer Development Academy Playoffs in Westfield, Indiana.

The Ovideo, Florida native put the finishing touches on a 2-0 victory for Orlando over Pateadores U-17/18, a club from Irvine, California. 

Pereira joined Orlando City at the U-15/16 level, and he’ll graduate from the academy next year. 

Orlando’s senior side is in action on Saturday as Kaka leads his team against Bastian Schweinsteiger’s Chicago Fire in MLS play.
