Did you know there is a 2015 FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup going on right now in Portugal? Well, there is.
And on the opening day we had an early contender for goal of the tournament in the opening game which saw Italy smash Costa Rica 6-1. The tournament runs from July 9-19 as 16 teams battle it out for the crown in Espinho, Portugal.
I’ve seen a lot of beach soccer in my time and this has to be right up there with the best strikes. Watch the video above to see Gabriele Gori’s amazing bicycle kick with the opening goal of the tournament. Gabriele, take a bow.
