Champions League: Mehdi Taremi scores goal of the season contender during Chelsea vs Porto (Video)

Chelsea won the first leg 2-0 and were in total control in the match before substitute Taremi scored a late golazo but it was too late to complete the comeback.
The blues qualify for the semi-final of the Champions League 2-1 on aggregate.

Mehdi Taremi's goal against Chelsea means a lot to Iranians
May not mean much to anyone, but this means the world to us Iranians.— Arya ²⁹ 🇮🇷 🇨🇦 (@Twenty9United) April 13, 2021
Mehdi Taremi, ladies and gentlemen.
But he is not the first Iranian to score a bicycle kick goal against Chelsea. Alireza Jahanbakhsh scored this beautiful overhead kick for Brighton against Chelsea in the Premier League.
I think I find it more peculiar than I should that Mehdi Taremi isn’t the first Iranian to bag a byci vs Chelsea. pic.twitter.com/uZJJHc9RzG— Sam Mayer (@sam_mayer1) April 13, 2021
