Leicester take the lead with tremendous overhead kick goal

Shinji Okazaki just embarrassed Newcastle.

Newcastle were desperately holding on against Leicester City, trying not to give up a goal as they fought to earn an upset and get out of the relegation zone in the English Premier League. Shinji Okazaki had other ideas.

Look at how happy he is. There is so much joy and pride in that celebration. And he earned every bit of it, because going over on a bicycle kick so willingly and nailing it like Okazaki did is something worthy of joy and pride. It was perfectly executed, and as soon as he leaned back to go for it, Newcastle were pretty much doomed to give up the goal.
