Twitter marvels at Divock Origi’s absurd one-legged scorpion kick goal

Divock Origi with scorpion kick goal

Liverpool secured their spot in the quarterfinals of the Carabao Cup after a 2-0 win over Preston North End at the Deepdale Stadium.

A heavily-rotated Liverpool side, the first-half performance was not as they would have wanted as Jurgen Klopp’s side were sluggish and unorganised against the Championship outfit.

However, the Reds got their act together in the second half and dominated proceedings. They scored twice with Takumi Minamino and Divock Origi netting in the space of twenty two minutes.

The Belgian striker sent shockwaves around the football community with a casually executed scorpion kick goal.

A modified version, it wasn’t your regular scorpion shot as one of Origi’s legs was planted on the ground as oppose to both the legs in air as seen during normal scorpion execution.

This goal is not only impressive for being so difficult to pull off but also for being done from an off-balance position and at such a tight angle.

The sense of joy shown on Twitter was evident as people shared their thoughts on Divock Origi’s goal:
