Erlan Mealla Goal: Scorpion Kick By Bolivian Striker Results In Stunning Score (VIDEO)

During this Bolivian First Division match between Nacional Potosi and a team apparently called "The Strongest," Erlan Mealla of Potosi delivered one of the more remarkable goals you'll ever see.

The 23-year-old adjusted his body to make contact on a cross that went behind him, pulling off an improbable trick widely referred to as a "scorpion" shot from in excess of 20 yards away.

Incredibly, this wasn't the first successful scorpion kick we've seen performed on the professional level in the past couple of months. In December, Baise Festus pulled off the remarkable feat in Hong Kong in what was one of the top goals of 2011.

It may not be the most reliable way to go about scoring a goal, but by every measure, it's pretty awesome.
