If you catch a New England Revolution game, you'll likely walk away impressed by the talent of Lee Nguyen. The midfielder is astute with his passing, crafty with his dribbling, and spot-on with his shooting.While the 29-year-old has been playing professionally since 2006, it seems that he has a few tricks we haven't seen yet.

During a practice held in Tucson, AZ, Nguyen hit what can only be described as a "super olimpico." Despite the ball being behind the end line, Nguyen was able to take a shot that ended up in the back of the net. Take a look for yourself.

Now a play like this obviously wouldn't fly during a game, but you have to wonder if Nguyen might try a similar feat off of a corner kick during the regular season. If he's able to successful hit an olimpico, Nguyen wouldn't be the first to do so in MLS as Thierry Henry, David Beckham, and others have done it before.
