hits the ball two meters off the ground

Signed Olivier Giroud. The French striker has put his seal on the first leg of the round of 16 of the Champions League 2020-2021 between Chelsea andAtletico Madrid with a spectacular overturned who decided the match in Bucharest. The number 18 of the Blues took advantage of the defender’s error mattresses Hermoso, who kicked the ball back instead of clearing the area; and with an extraordinary technical gesture he beat Jan Oblak from a few steps. A true hymn to football and to one of its greatest expressions of beauty.

When such a gesture is implemented by a footballer there is always a certain motion in the eye of the beholder: there is no programming, it is not something decided or expected when it occurs. A shot capable of surprising every time, almost as if time stopped for a few seconds waiting for what is coming. In Spanish-speaking countries it is called “chilena”, we call it “inverted” while in English-speaking countries the term “overhead kick” is used but it always arouses incredible sensations.

The 36-year-old striker of the British club, who in the last market sessions has been associated with several Italian clubs (Lazio, Inter and Juventus); he hit the ball almost two meters from the ground (1.97) and in addition to the technique this also shows very important athletic skills. It is not the first time that Giroud has performed spectacular plays: the super heel goal against Crystal Palace in the Premier League day that opened in January 2017 is unforgettable.

Olivier Giroud is always given as second, third choice at the beginning of every football season but he punctually denies all predictions and manages to carve out his space by often finding the way to goal: so far there are 11 goals in 22 seasonal appearances and 6 only in Champions League, also thanks to the poker at Sevilla in the group.
