Scoring a goal is cool. Scoring 21 is absurd.
Yanick Djouzi Manzizila is absurdly cool. The Congo United FC player set a Swedish football record by scoring 21 goals in their seventh division match on Saturday. That is not a typo.
"I had scored 12 goals against them before, so I knew there was a chance to score goals," Manzizila told Aftonbladet. "I got a good start and then it just ran away, it just went to overdrive."
Yes, overdrive. That is one way to describe it.
Other ways include: thrashing, embarrassing, run amok, destruction, remarkable, holy hell.
Congo United won the match 30-0, upping their goal difference to 86-6 on the season. But that is way less impressive than scoring 21 goals in a match.
The previous Swedish record was 18 goals in a match, set way back in 1954. And what was Manzizila's reaction to being told his 21 goals were a record?
"Oh fuck, what fun!"
Oh fuck what fun indeed.
