VIDEO: Move over Messi! Kluivert scores the Goal of the Season

The former Barcelona striker reunited with some of his old team-mates for a charity match against the Uganda All Stars, and managed to pull of a stunning long-range lob


Lionel Messi, Wendell Lira and Alessandro Florenzi will be counting their lucky stars that they are already confirmed on the three-man Puskas shortlist – because Patrick Kluivert has just scored the goal of the year.

The 39-year-old Dutchman was taking part in a charity match with Barcelona Legends against the Uganda All Stars when he launched a speculative, 40-yard, one-touch, outside-of-the-boot lob towards goal that hung in the air before sneaking under the crossbar.

“Speechless, speechless, speechless,” cried the commentator, while Luis Garcia – who had laid Edgar Davids’ raking crossfield pass into the path of Kluivert – grabbed his head in his hands out of sheer disbelief.

“Nice to see that the touch is still there,” Kluivert joked afterwards; though, despite his wonder goal, it wasn’t all fun and games for Barca’s legends as they ended up losing 5-3 at the Nelson Mandela Stadium.

Proceeds from the match will fund a Ugandan project, RG Football Academy, that is also being supported by legends.

Kluivert scored some stunning goals in his glittering career – he racked up 90 league goals 182 games for Barcelona – but few will have come close to equalling the brilliance of his lob against the Uganda All Stars. Check out all the game’s goals below…
