Vinicius Jr Scores An Absolute Rocket In La Liga Clash With Sevilla

Vinicius Jr reaffirmed his status as one of the world's most exciting young footballers by scoring an absolute rocket in Real Madrid's 2-1 win over Sevilla on Sunday.

The Brazilian completed Real's comeback from a goal down with this superb 87th-minute winner to reclaim their four-point lead at the top of the table.

He has now scored 11 goals in 19 appearances across all competitions, and nine of those strikes have come in La Liga.

The 21-year-old clearly has a lot to be happy about right now, and celebrated his latest moment of brilliance with a cheeky samba shuffle by the corner flag.

The goal sparked plenty of reaction on Twitter and showed the amount of hype surrounding the talented youngster. Meanwhile, the celebration saw him compared to compatriot and Brazilian legend, Ronaldinho.

La Liga TV commentator Terry Gibson also waxed lyrically about the goal, and said: "He does so well here to beat Ocampos, then he drops a shoulder and goes past Montiel with ease, but then he's got so much to do. From that angle, he then has to get the power, and then find the accuracy to drill it into the top corner.

"It's a phenomenal strike from an outstanding young player. At 21 years of age, he's got the lot - it's a brilliant goal."

But now the focus for Vinicius Jr and Los Blancos will be a home clash against Athletic Bilbao on Wednesday night.

This win over Sevilla means that Carlo Ancelotti's side head into the game on a run of six consecutive victories in all competitions - winning eight of their last nine matches.

All eyes will be on Vinicius Jr to see if he can produce another moment of magic.
