Sunday’s match between Olimpia and Sol de America in the Paraguayan first division saw a late comeback by the visitors topped off with this tremendous free kick from distance blasted perfectly into the top corner by Sol de America’s Brazilian midfielder Inca.
The 80th minute effort, which gave Sol de America their second goal in just six minutes and a 2-1 win, appears to have caught the goalkeeper off guard, but there’s probably not much he could have done to stop that beauty anyway. Unless he filled the goal with cantaloupes or something, but that would have taken too long.
While a goal like this certainly isn’t unprecedented, it’s still quite impressive and worth a gold star for the day. If, you know, I had gold stars to give out for such achievements.
