Play of the day: One-legged volley

Scoring an overhead volley straight from a corner kick is one of the toughest football maneuvers a player can pull off.

The combination of timing, co-ordination and athleticism is simply too much for most players to deal with, but one-legged footballer Nico Calabria made it look very easy.

Calabria - an amputee born with one leg who moves around the field on crutches - swiveled his body around in the crowded penalty area before scoring for US high school side Concord-Carlisle Regional with an unstoppable volley.
