Ridiculously Improbable Soccer Goal Turns Physics on Its Ear
This soccer player bent it like Beckham. And then it just kept on bending.
Faiz Subri, who plays for Pulau Pinang in the Malaysian Super League, scored when he nailed this absurd free kick during his team’s 4-1 victory over Pahang earlier this week.
He drills the ball and then everyone watches as the ball wiggles through the air and past the bewildered goalkeeper for a score. That ball swerves like a sports car hugging the curves.
Here’s another look:

There are pitchers who would kill to make their balls have this much movement on it.
The goal has generated serious buzz, with many fans claiming it will be the one to beat when FIFA hands out the Puskás Award, which goes to the best score of the year. Yeah, this will certainly be a tough one to top.
