The Portuguese press is in love with the goal scored by Diogo Gonçalves against Bosnia in an U21 match on Tuesday.
The Nottingham Forest player only entered the game in the second half, but was quick to help his team in the 4-2 win with a wonderful play in the 64th minute.
Gonçalves went past six Bosnian players – and even had to dribble around one of his teammates, if you pay attention – to score Portugal’s third goal in the match.
The game was played for the U21 Euro Qualifiers, and the Portuguese side are currently getting a playoff spot to fight for a place in next year’s tournament.
Reacting to Gonçalves’ goal, Lisbon newspaper A Bola says on their front page that he’s scored ‘à la Maradona’, recalling the Argentine’s goal against England in the 1986 World Cup.
Currently loaned to Nottingham Forest by Benfica, Gonçalves could stay at the Championship side in case they activate their buying option at the end of the season.
