45m Free-Kick Goal – Roberto Carlos style

José Manuel Rey, age 32‘Roberto Carlos’ who? Take a look at the free-kick magic of Venezuela defender José Manuel Rey, in a World Cup 2010 qualifying match against Ecuador this week. Granted, the shot was slightly deflected which contributed to its strange trajectory, but we are still talking about 45 meters here people!

For those that speak Spanish, here’s Rey’s interview after the match. Rey admitted himself that the goal was a bit lucky, because it’s “so hard to score from that distance”. Above all, he was happy about Venezuela’s win in the qualifiers.

For everyone else, feast your eyes on the goal below.
