A video has gone viral via social media, which shows how an unbelievable free kick is taken during a football match.
What stood out is the immense distance away from goal, with the free kick taker estimated to be 40 metres out and at an acute angle.
The young man, known as Sgubhu, proceeds to strike the ball with power and it sails over everyone’s heads as it evades the goalkeeper and flies into the back of the net.
South Africa Live shared the video via Facebook on Thursday and has already been viewed 35 000 times.
Social media users couldn’t resist the footage, but Briefly.co.za gathered that they underestimated the footballer.
Ernesto Sibanda said, “Again confirmed. Never judge a book by its cover lol personally I thought he would miss the ball and fall.”
Pinto Pedro added, “I was expecting him to fall or miss the ball. Well done.”
Zamoney M Mathaba admitted: “I always have bad expectations, but Sgubhu changed my life today.”
Jocelyne Belinda Mashita said, “Woooooooooooooooow definitely not what I expected.”
David Walsh added, “Should be playing rugby excellent kick.”
Mbuso Vice said, “The body is good for rugby game.”
