[VIDEO PICK: Golazo] An epic coast-to-coast gallop in Italy by 19-year-old Ezekiel Isoken Henty, who sprinted past, and ran over, the Varane defense for AC Milan's Primavera team.

Henty’s run came for Milan’s U-19 team, started on a corner and began in his own box, making it inevitable that people would begin comparing it to Liberian legend George Weah’s celebrated sprint for AC Milan in 1996.
