barrida desesperada

Chicharito recibió el golpe en una barrida desesperada, al disparar hacia la parte externa de la portería, cuando buscaba anotar después de que el tiro de Wayne Rooney se estrellara en el poste, a solo 13 minutos del final del encuentro.
Con el balón de nueva cuenta en sus pies, el exjugador del Lanús hizo alarde de habilidad entre dos defensas, eludió al portero brasileño Tiago Volpi dentro del área chica, y tocó a la red ante la barrida desesperada de un rival.
El atacante andino controló el esférico, entró al área, se dio el autopase, superó al arquero Adrián Martínez, y se reencontró con la pelota para mandarla a la red ante la barrida desesperada de paraguayo Pablo Aguilar.
