Highest ever goal scored at Wembley

Andrew Henderson has scored the highest ever goal at Wembley, 30 metres above the pitch.

The freestyle football champion was performing tricks and extreme keepy uppies along the stadium’s zip wire, which is running as part of the Wembley Tour.

Giving himself the ultimate birds’ eye view of the playing field Henderson hurtled down the 200-metre wire reaching speeds of 25 miles per hour (faster than Usain Bolt) as he controlled the ball and managed to land his second attempt in the back of the net.

Andrew Henderson, from Truro in Cornwall, scooped the World Freestyle Football Championship last year in Malaysia with his extraordinary footballing skills and signature move – the Triple Around The World.

Henderson said: “This was definitely the most extreme freestyling I’ve ever done – it was so fast, with an incredible view of the pitch.

“It wasn’t easy trying to score but I managed to build up my confidence each time I went down the wire. Scoring a goal at Wembley while shooting across the pitch 30 metres in the air is the ultimate thrill.”
