If it didn’t hit the crossbar, it was the goal of the day. And, perhaps, the best so far this year in Argentine football. Emiliano Vecchio was close to consummating genius and, despite the fact that the crossbar denied him, the video deserves it. Mwill go what happened in the second half between Gymnastics and Racing in La Plata.
They were 13 minutes into the second half. Corner kick in favor of the Academy, 1-2 on the scoreboard. Vecchio, who had replaced the Paraguayan Rojas six minutes earlier, tried to surprise Rodrigo Rey, who was giving directions on the edge of the small area.
The one Vecchio tried.
Vecchio executed with the outside of his right foot, three fingers, and the ball went straight, parallel to the baseline. Miraculously for Gymnastics, it hit the crossbar and went over the baseline. In the distance, Rey, who had flown in for the photo, smiled at the former Central. What a scare!
THE MEMORY OF DAMIÁN DÍAZ
Two months ago and coins, the Argentine Damián Díaz had put it in an Olympic way for Barcelona of Ecuador for Copa Sudamericana against Wanderers from Uruguay. Vecchio was very close to emulating him.
