In Barcelona they used to say that Troiteiro, whom they called ‘zurdito’ (lefty), was even better than Iniesta. While Iniesta continues to play and triumph with Barcelona, his childhood friend Troiteiro chose a different path. Now playing at a lower division Spanish league for Burgos CF, his name has returned to the spotlight.
Losing 0-1 to Tordesillas, a genius bit of skill saw Troiteiro juke three defenders at the same time to open up a shot on goal. This Messi-esque show has earned Troiteiro the “Best Goal in all of Europe”.
