The Argentine teenager needed to move further away from the goal and rise high to meet the wayward cross, making the remarkable piece of athleticism that followed even more impressive.
“I can’t believe it,” Garnacho said after the match. “One of the best goals I’ve scored and I’m very happy.”
Garnacho’s goal drew immediate comparisons to Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney’s overhead kick against Manchester City in 2011.
