As we said Thursday, about soccer player Sergio Ramos' slippery grip and the damage it caused when he dropped a prestigious trophy under his team's bus, soccer players are better with their feet than their hands.

Here's further proof. In his team's 4-0 win Thursday night over D.C. United, Juan Agudelo of the New York Red Bulls first flicked the ball into the air and then drove it home. We pull a muscle just thinking about it.

Agudelo's goal is drawing comparisons to a famous 2000 score by Thierry Henry (who now also plays for the Red Bulls).

Agudelo, by the way, was born in Colombia. But he has lived most of his life in the U.S. and is and has opted to play for the U.S. national team.
