Streamer Screamer: West Coast Eagles crazy football player Levi Rojas scores goal level with Cristiano Ronaldo
Levi Rojas loves football so much that he can’t decide between his two favorite codes.
The West Coast-mad six-year-old’s love for the Eagles is matched only by his passion for Liverpool Football Club – and he plays both football and Auskick every Sunday.
But it’s a standout goal with the round ball that has Levi in the mix for this year’s Streamer Screamer – which is featured on 7NEWS on Wednesday night by his footy hero, Eagles goalscoring champion Josh Kennedy.
Playing for Aubin Grove United, Levi kicked the ball from his team’s defensive backline. He says he was looking to find a team-mate, but the ball found its way into the net at the other end of the field instead.
“I was trying to aim for my teammate but accidentally kicked hard and scored a goal,” he said.
It’s Levi’s first season of football, but he said it was the best goal he’s ever scored.
It didn’t come without fanfare either, with the young gun launching into a full-throttle celebration inspired by Manchester United’s great Cristiano Ronaldo.
When asked what his favorite sport was, the youngster pondered before replying: “Maybe both.”
The Eagles’ tragic adores recently retired club legend Josh Kennedy and said the club have some serious work to do if they are to fill the void left by their 712-goal star, including a pointed message for another club favorite fans.
“I like Josh Kennedy, but the Eagles need to step up because they need to be in the Finals,” Levi said.
“I have to say Nic Naitanui (is the player who needs to step up), he needs to hit the ball harder.”
Every Wednesday night, Kennedy will share their top three Streamer Screamers of the week on 7NEWS, before the final winners are chosen by our experts.
The competition is a chance to showcase the best of the best from all kinds of community sports across WA.
Highlights can be from any sport and can even be from someone else – as long as you have their permission to share them.
