Lithuania U21 star scores stunning back-heel volley

Published 1 Comments

Lithuania is not normally regarded as a hotbed of footballing talent, but the eastern European nation may have unearthed a gem.

18-year-old Lukas Spalvis, making just his second appearance for the under-21 national team, scored a brace - including one stunning back-heel volley.

The Finns were opened up at the back by a slick passing move before a cross was whipped in at knee height.

And Spalvis swept the ball home with an inventive back-heel flick into the near corner. 

It's one of the toughest skills in the game to get right, and the teenager made it look easy. So it might be an idea to keep your eye out for this one - Spalvis currently plays in Denmark for Aalborg BK.
