Panama newspaper laments Mexico’s ‘fu**ing’ bicycle kick winner

You have to admire the sheer honesty of it all…

Mexico left it late, very late, to keep alive their World Cup hopes at the weekend and Panama were left to rue what might have been.


The game was tied at 1-1, a result which would have left Mexico’s chances of qualifying for Rio hanging by a thread, when Raul Jimenez conjured up an outstanding bicycle-kick effort to hit Panama with a sucker punch and at the very least guarantee his side a play-off with New Zealand. If results go their way automatic qualification is still on the cards.

Panama however were left to lick their wounds, and the country’s Critica newspaper was as blunt as you could possibly get to describe the match-winning goal. The word for bicycle-kick is chilena in case you were unsure.
