A viral video has surfaced online, where a Polish amputee soccer player Marcin Oleksy has produced a spectacular overhead kick to score a goal in the PZU Amp Futbol Ekstraklasa 2022. Oleksy was a former goalkeeper until he was hit by a car at the age of 23, leading the doctors to amputate his left leg.
While playing for his Polish side Warta Poznan against Stal Rzeszow in the PZU Amp Futbol Ekstraklasa 2022, Oleksy pulled off a stunning bicycle kick to score a goal for his team.
During the game, a cross was latched just outside the box from the right corner and Oleksy positioned himself perfectly to meet the cross. The 41-year-old shifted his balance on one of his crutches and fired an outrageous overhead kick into the far post.
Watch the video here:
Oleksy was swamped by his teammates as soon as he hit the stunner leaving his opponents and fans stunned with his outrageous move. The Warta Poznan striker, who was a goalkeeper in his younger days, has represented Poland at the Amputee World Cup and trains aspiring goalkeepers.
Fans set social media abuzz after watching the outrageous goal as one user said on Reddit, "How do we nominate this for the Puskas?", while another said, "Meanwhile I swung and missed twice in Sunday league yesterday."
