World Record Header Goal From Japanese Defender (Video)

This video slipped by me a couple days back, but I had to put it up.  This is the world record for longest header to score a goal from 63-yards. Not sure how the dumb-ass goalie let the ball by him, but he got big salt in the wound when he dove in the goal and smashed his face in the back of the net.  Might be the most impressive soccer goal I have ever seen. ...

LSU vs. Aurburn Preview 2011
