Tribute paid to Higuita's scorpion kick
This trend was continued in a recent Belgian league game between Gent and Standard Liege. Ecuadorian goalkeeper Rorys Aragon Espinosa paid tribute to his hero Rene Higuita. And what better way to pay homage to the Colombian mentalist than recreating his 1995 scorpion kick during the friendly against England at Wembley.
Espinosa doesn't quite manage to live up to Higuita's high standards, and his haircut can't compare to the Colombian's Soul-Glo style permed barnet, but hats off for giving the scorpion kick a go.
