Brazilian phenom Marcos Leonardo scored a ridiculous goal for his club Santos on Friday that was SportsCenter Top 10 material. Unfortunately for him the goal was called back for offside.
With Santos leading Coritiba FC late in the second half, Leonardo put on a show as he smoothly controlled the ball with his chest, dinked it over an opponent and smashed it by the goalkeeper.
What a move from the 20-year-old.

The offside call was tight, but man it’s too bad that one didn’t count.
Leonardo did score the game-winner for his side during the game with a headed effort in the 73rd minute. It was his 13th goal in 23 Série A appearances this season as Santos won 2-1.

Leonardo will be a name to remember as he'll likely be transferring to a top European club in the near future.
