The Englishman became viral thanks to his conquest against Standard Liege, for the first date of the continental tournament. His story.

Kemar Roofe He is an old acquaintance of the Argentines. At least for those who closely follow everything Marcelo Bielsa does. It is that this striker born 27 years ago in Walsall, England, was Leeds United’s starting scorer in that ill-fated first season in the Championship that ended in frustration with a promotion that seemed certain and did not materialize.

And this Thursday he was the protagonist of the great pearl of the day at the start of the Europa League with an epic goal that seems to go non-stop to Puskas, the award that FIFA awards annually to the best goals of the season.

Roofe, who started most of the season due to the chronic injury of Patrick Bamford, one of the heroes of the following season that led to this present in the Premier League for the Rosario team, had dispatched with 15 goals that allowed him to call the attention of Belgian Anderlecht.

But he did not do well in the land of Courtois, Lukaku and Hazard with the Anderlecht jersey and returned to Great Britain to play for Glasgow Rangers, one of the giants of Scottish football. And there he seems to have found the way of redemption.

At least that is the path that can begin to travel thanks to this imposing goal in which he combined handsomeness to take the ball and later lucidity to see the goalkeeper ahead and precision to hit the shot between the three sticks.

The most curious of all is that the goal was made, precisely, in Belgium. It was for Glasgow Rangers 2-0 over Standard Liege. Roofe’s shout came in the second stoppage time to seal the result after Tavernier, on penalty, scored the 1-0 partial for the visit. He celebrated in a wild way. It was not be for lowerly.

Roofe, with Jamaican blood, is a soccer globetrotter. He was trained in West Bromwich Albion and before reaching the First he had a brief stint at Vikingur Reykjavik in Iceland. He also made a pilgrimage for the rise of English football, where he defended the colors of Northampton Town, Cheltenham Town, Colchester United and Oxford United, until he earned a place in that sleeping giant that was Leeds United, where he spent three seasons.

Now, after the dark year in Belgium, he returns to the fore with this great goal that helped the Scottish team to kick off group D of the Europa League, where he shares the lead with the Portuguese Benfica who beat him 4-2 to Lech Poznan on his excursion through Poland.
