    Default Lingering doubt

    Why is a bicycle kick called a "chilena"???? It seemed so promising that that doubt would be answered here! Does anyone actually know?

    This is supposed to be a question for soccer fans:

    Bicicleta o chilena en "balón pié":
    a soccer football kick, with the back sprawled out, air suspended and shooting leg at 90 degrees.


    I`ve heard of da.

    Excuse me, something left:

    Running a bicycle with a little effort, makes a 90 degree body shape.

    Bueno, ahora me dicen que en 1916, había un jugador de Chile que jugaba acá en Buenos Aires por un campeonato y metió un gol así...desde ahí, lo llaman "chilena"...aunque no entiendo por qué sería feminino!!!! El tema no cierra nunca! Puede ser que Armando haya acertado y es por la música.

    La "Chilena" en fútbol es patear al arco estando de espaldas y dando un salto mortal para atrás que queda la cabeza para abajo y las piernas para arriba.
