Sparta Prague’s David Lafata scores twisting scissor kick goal against his old club

It’s hard enough to accurately connect with the ball in a scissor kick, let alone put it on frame.

But Sparta Prague star David Lafata did just that and more, putting the ball in the back of the net with his own interpretation on the difficult technique with a twisting, turning version.

Take a look:

Sparta Prague were battling FK Baumit Jablonec, which happens to be Lafata’s old club.

Lafata wound up doubling Sparta’s lead, giving his new team a 2-0 victory, but more importantly, giving us something to ooh and aww at.
