Sparta Prague winger Lukas Haraslin has gone viral after scoring a goal in his side’s 3-1 friendly win over FC Nuremberg on Saturday whilst wearing a GoPro camera.
Both sides came into the contest on a cold afternoon at Sparta’s Letna Stadium off the back of a winter break.
However, the home side didn’t let their inactivity bother them as they raced into a two-goal lead inside the first 10 minutes.
After Tomas Cvancara had given Sparta the ideal start four minutes in, Haraslin pounced on some terrible defending by the German side to make it 2-0 with barely seven minutes gone.
As you’ll see in the footage below (at 22:40 onwards), there wasn’t much out of the ordinary with Haraslin’s goal when viewed from a traditional TV camera angle.
Yes, the 26-year-old took his chance well after profiting from an error at the back, but it’s certainly not a strike that will feature in his career highlight reel.
However, enjoying the goal from the first-person perspective provided by the GoPro footage really does provide some unique insight.
From the sound of the ball leaving Haraslin’s boot as he strikes it, to his loud ‘wooo’ as he hits a knee slide celebration and even his interactions with teammates after scoring, everything is included here in a refreshingly authentic fashion.
You can check it out in all its glory below.
