GarnachoGarnacho Bicycle Kick

Alejandro Garnacho delivered a sensational overhead kick reminiscent of Cristiano Ronaldo, securing the opening goal for Manchester United against Everton. In a match that saw the Argentina international winger silence the home supporters protesting their 10-point Premier League penalty, Garnacho’s remarkable effort, reminiscent of Ronaldo’s iconic strike for Real Madrid against Juventus in the Champions League, occurred within the first three minutes at Goodison Park.

The upcoming fixtures for Manchester United include a UEFA Champions League clash against Galatasaray on November 29, 2023, and a Premier League encounter against Nottingham Forest on December 2, 2023.

Reflecting on the broader context of the game, Diogo Dalot provided a seemingly routine cross from the right, but Garnacho, aged 19, displayed extraordinary acrobatics to send the ball sailing beyond Everton’s Jordan Pickford. This striking feat echoed the style of Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney, who similarly scored a memorable overhead kick in a derby against City in 2011.

After his incredible goal, Garnacho paid homage to Ronaldo by adopting the CR7 trademark ‘Siuuuu’ celebration.
