WATCH: 19-Year-Old Soccer Star Ignores Physics, Hits Absurd Goal

First things first: perhaps we should expect this sort of thing from anyone whose name is only one letter away from ‘Pelé’.
Even then, the Brazilian himself is probably chuffed after seeing Dele Alli’s wonder strike to put English mainstays Tottenham Hotspur 1 – 2 up vs. cross-city competitors Crystal Palace overnight.

We encourage you to take this all in. Savour it. The cross from club hero Harry Kane. The knock-down from Danish no. 23 Christian Eriksen. Finally, the complete disregard for human life the 19-year-old (!!!) demonstrates as he traps the ball, juggles it over Palace centre-back Scott Dann, and nails it into the bottom corner.

Dele Alli scored this absolute beauty today! The touch, the flick, the finish ???????????? #DeleAlli #Alli

Socceroo and Palace captain Mile Jedinak could only look on as the youngster scored what’s likely to be the goal of the 2015 – 2016 Premier League season.

The goal is already drawing comparisons to James Rodríguez’ hit for Colombia in the 2014 World Cup, a goal that was eventually crowned FIFA’s Goal Of The Year. So spicy was said strike that past and present greats weighed in on social media. Former Spurs talisman Gareth Bale had his piece:

Ex-Southampton magician Matt Le Tissier, himself no stranger to absurd wondergoals, is also down with strike. 

Even the BBC couldn’t help themselves from memein’ up a storm.

Tottenham ultimately went out 1 – 3 winners, and currently sit 4th on the Premier League table. Alli’s deffo gone a long way into securing their hold on the ‘holy shit, did you see that?’ race, though.
