Former Man City star Elano scored a Beckham-esque free-kick for Flamengo v Emelec
The Maracana went wild on 11 minutes played of Flamengo’s Copa Libertadores clash with Emelec on Wednesday evening.
Flamengo would go on to win 3-1 but the game got off to a flying start thanks to a wonder free-kick by former Manchester City midfielder Elano.
Elano has spent time at both Santos and Gremio since returning to Brazilian club football, if he keeps scoring David Beckham-esque free-kicks you can be sure he will be a favourite in Rio.
