As defined by Merriam-Webster Dictionary, sumptuous is an adjective meaning "extremely costly, rich, luxurious, or magnificent."

On a soccer field, it looks like this:

U.S. striker Jozy Altidore scored the first goal in an international friendly against Germany at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C. on Sunday. Coming off a standout campaign with AZ Alkmaar, the 23-year-old seemed to have brought his good form stateside, volleying home a cross from Graham Zusi in the 14th minute.

ESPN commentator Ian Darke narrated the superb strike in equally superb fashion:

“Oh yes! Jozy Altidore ends the scoring drought and what a way to do it! It was a sumptuous volley!”

The United States would take a 2-0 lead into the dressing room at half time and hold on for a 4-3 win in a thrilling second half.
