30-Yard Rocket From Bruno Fernandes Causes Internet Meltdown

Sporting CP midfielder Bruno Fernandes scored the Europa League’s goal of the season Thursday.

A 30-yard ballistic missile from 23-year-old midfielder Bruno Fernandes helped Sporting CP to a 6-4 aggregate victory over FC Astana in the Europa League Round of 32 Thursday, the Portuguese international scoring the first of his two goals on the day in the 53rd minute with this rocket.

Historically, there’s been some conjecture over whether or not the shot power generated by Roberto Carlos could kill a cow, but I’d be willing to bet that this shot here would eviscerate any and every form of life, from a hard-bodied tick to an armadillo in its leathery armor shell. 

But why in the hell would you attack a poor animal like that?

We all need to ensure that we never find ourselves on the receiving end of a strike like this. Fortunately, 999,999 times out of a million, this just sails into the heavens. Bruno Fernandes caught this one to perfection, and no animals were harmed in the making of this goal.
