Yerson Candelo’s goal in the first leg of the BetBlay League 2022-1 has gone around the world for its beauty, difficulty and context in which it happened. Many have even nominated him as a candidate for the Puskas Award, an award given by Fifa to the best goal of each season. Meanwhile, Nacional has already repeated the goal, but this time in its lower divisions, with one of the promises of the green quarry.

Who did it?
The architect of this tremendous goal is the young Juan Pablo Tatay Torres who, at just 18 years old, was about to leave for Midtjylland in Denmark due to his excellent conditions.
This anthology play took place in a U20 match that would end 4-0 in favor of Nacional over Jaguares. This goal serves so that the bulk of the Purslane fans get to know the crack prospect that is in their quarry and as a wake-up call to the club’s directors so that they do not let him leave and he can succeed in a club that has always needed the talented to champion.
In Denmark they seem to have been delighted with Tatay’s talent and he is expected to be offered a professional contract very soon. Consequently, Nacional will have to offer him better conditions to keep his pass.
Tatay, who had already repeated Candelo’s goal in Nacional, for now continues to be a green paisa player, and one of the most prominent in the minor divisions; hoping that the professional team will give him the opportunity to show his conditions.
