This goal happened yesterday in an NWSL match between New Jersey's Sky Blue FC and the Boston Breakers. A Sky Blue player picked her way through the left side of the box, but found herself surrounded by defenders. So she cut back and looped in a prayer to 28-year-old forward Lisa De Vanna. The ball was a little bit behind De Vanna, but apparently, that didn't matter.
The Australian national spun, and with her back to goal, leapt, connected with her left foot, and sent the ball into the top corner of the net. It sent the announcer, who we weren't sure even existed, into raptures, and it'll be a shock if De Vanna's goal doesn't win goal of the year at the end of the NWSL's inaugural season. Spectacular finish from one of the world's best. Sky Blue FC won 5-1.
