Ever scored with the outside of your boot direct from a corner?

Because Carlos Lobaton has.

OLÍMPICOS – THE ACHINGLY hipster term coined for goals scored directly from a corner kick – are rare enough but we don’t we’ve ever scored one with the outside of the boot.

Last week, the USA’s Michael Bradley scored a high lofted effort against Panama but this screamer from Carlos Lobaton for Sporting Cristal in the Peruvian league is different class altogether.

Spotting the Cienciano keeper off his line, Lobaton drilled the ball with the outside of the right boot, his effort sneaking in a the near post.
