Panama’s Gaby Torres scores tremendous backheel from difficult angle against Honduras

Gabriel Torres helped keep Panama’s World Cup hopes alive with a brace in their 2-2 draw against Honduras and he did it in breath-taking style. With Honduras up 1-0, Torres equalized (for the first time) in the 50th minute with an absurd flying backheel as he charged towards the endline that floated over the keeper and landed softly inside the goal. The 24-year-old Colorado Rapids striker lived up to his nickname of “Fantasmita” (little ghost) with that goal, but he wasn’t done yet.

Torres eventually equalized again in the first minute of added time to put Panama in the fourth-place/playoff spot in the group ahead of Mexico, who lost 2-0 to the USA. Again.

Anyway, the guy in the bottom right corner of this group was not pleased with Torres’ first goal…
