An outrageous free-kick was scoring in the Colombian top flight last weekend, in the opening round of the 2013-14 season.
Deportivo Cali picked up a comfortable 3-0 win away at Once Caldas, and the last goal of the game was a sensational 40-yard free-kick from Vladimir Marin.
With 10 minutes left in the match Cali won a free-kick just inside the Once Caldes half, and 33-year-old Marin took responsibility for the set-play.
While aiming for goal was probably not the most sensible thing to do, the veteran midfielder did just that, and the result was an unbelievable golazo. His jacket wearing goal celebration was pretty cool also.
Watch Vladimir Marin’s 40-yard free-kick golazo below.
