It took a bicycle kick to end this mad goal-mouth scramble after the bar was hit THREE times

This is what the World Cup is missing.

PERSISTENCE IS POWER, as I’m sure somebody important once said. And if you don’t believe in that then have a gander at the below highlights from a Peruvian Primera Division match yesterday.

The game was just four minutes and 33 seconds old when hosts Real Garcilaso had their woodwork rattled three times.

First, a placed shot. Second, a Paul Rideout-style header. Third, the little-utilised shoulder-charge shot.

Eventually, Sport Huancayo took the lead with a brilliant bicycle kick as their fourth shot in five seconds.
