Barcelona U12s player scores epic goal from own half

The best goal of 2017 might have been scored by an 11-year-old after a Barcelona youngster netted this insane long-range strike.

Gerard Hernandez, a member of Barcelona's Alevin A squad, scored a truly stunning goal in his side's 3-1 win over Villarreal recently.

Hernandez received the ball from a kick-off and went straight for glory, taking the keeper completely by surprise.

Sure the field wasn't regulation size, but the strike was simply staggering from a player who isn't even a teenager yet.
