Mexico’s Raul Jimenez Scores Insane Bicycle Kick Goal In World Cup Qualifier Against Panama [VIDEO]

Mexico came into tonight’s FIFA World Cup qualifying match with Panama in fifth place, needing a win to leap ahead of Panama and into a potential qualifying position for a playoff with New Zealand to make the big tournament in Brazil in 2014. As they have all qualifying tournament long, they looked subpar, until this wonder strike from Raul Jimenez gave them the late lead and put them back into qualifying position.

And, now, for the epic Spanish language reaction:

Now, obviously this isn’t as important as a goal in the World Cup itself, but for a country that hyped this generation of players as one that would lead Mexico to a “golden generation” of success, it may have been the most important goal in a long time in soccer.

Also, the degree of difficulty on this is staggering. Not only was Jimenez not even facing the goal, but had to flip his body backwards just to get a foot on it, let alone direct it accurately into the back of the net. Simply amazing.

As a result, Mexico is three points ahead of Panama with one match left in World Cup Qualifying for each team. Panama will host the United States, winners of the CONCACAF qualifying group, while Mexico will take on second place Costa Rica. Panama will need a win and a Mexico loss to qualify, while Mexico can advance with either a win or draw, or a draw or loss from Panama.
