The goal of the century caused Nacho to tumble to the ground, but he was able to pick up his head in relief to see that the ball went in. Even if he wasn’t able to catch the crazy moment, the roaring from the crowd could have been a red flag he did something great.
The point made jaws drop all over the arena, but the most noticeable reactions came from Nacho’s teammate, James Rodriguez, 25, and Real Madrid’s coach, Zinedine Zidane, 44. In the video you can see James completely stunned over the goal as he paces the field in disbelief. Real coach, Zinedine, gave a stern look of approval as you can tell there were stars in his eyes!
This marked Nacho’s first goal of the season, and what a goal it was! He may of not been a player on everyone’s radar before this moment, but now, all eyes are on him. Many fans are even teasing the fact that he could very well be giving Real Madrid teammate, Cristiano Ronaldo, 31, a run for his money when it comes to eye-catching goals.
It is very hard to match up to Cristiano’s field and footwork skills, but Nacho is definitely on his way to becoming one of the greats. And, you can bet we’ll be keeping him on our radar!
We’ll see if Nacho can pull out all of his acrobatic stops when he and his team take on Deportivo Alavés, Saturday, Oct. 29. Real Madrid is set to host the La Liga matchup at 10:15 AM EST!
