Irvin Cardona Walks On Air While Smashing A Gravity-Defying Volley

This really looks like computer-generated imagery.

Brest defeated Dijon 2-0 in Ligue 1 action on Sunday after Romain Perraud opened the scoring in the 42nd minute before Irvin Cardona added the insurance goal in the fifth-minute of second half stoppage time.

“Insurance goal” is one way to frame it. Another is a gravity-defying piece of exceptionalism that only belongs in the Shaolin Soccer film. 

The 23-year-old Frenchman leapt off his left foot, brought his right leg forward before cocking it back like a howitzer artillery piece and smashed a volley into the roof of the net while the goalkeeper could only instinctively preserve the connection between his head and the rest of his body.
