Argentina U-17 player scores on incredible overhead kick

It didn't take long for Argentina to score against Uruguay in a South American U-17 championship match and there was sure nothing U-17 about the way they did.

Argentina's Sebastian Driussi made an amazing overhead kick for a goal from outside the box to give his team the lead in only the third minute of the match.

Set up by a lovely cross, Driussi chested the ball up and then launched a powerful overhead kick past Uruguay's keeper.

After his unbelievable score, the young man celebrated by lifting his jersey to reveal a T-shirt with the words: "Fuerza Sofia Te Amo" (Strength Wisdom and Love).

Driussi scored again in the 12th minute to make it 2-0 for the host country. Uruguay mounted a comeback in the second half though, and the final-stage match ended 3-3. Driussi is now one of the tournament's co-leaders with four goals.
