Photo Gallery: Anatomy of an Izo Elhabbib goal

The big Sudanese forward has had his playing time in Global cut because of the emergence of Mark Hartmann, Curt Dizon, and Milad Behgandom.  But he can still create goals with his big strong body, excellent technique, and creativity.

On Thursday Global walloped team Socceroo 9-0. Watch Elhabbib shield the ball from Dexter Jae Chio and power past Rolando Cabaniero for a 3-0 lead in the 24th minute. The ball never touches the ground until it’s in the net.

I got lucky positioned behind the goal to capture everything.

But it's all in vain as Elhabbib finds the back of the net. Silly me, I forgot to shoot the goal celebration.
