Venezuela’s Jose Manuel Rey scores free kick from near centre-circle

This is just incredible! Venezuela defender Jose Manuel Rey secured victory against Ecuador at the weekend with this goal, which was worthy of winning any match. Rey sets himself to take the free-kick, picks his spot and blasts the ball into the net – from near the centre-circle. The Ecuadorians knew what was coming and formed a wall, but there was nothing they could do to stop it. In fact, the ball is moving so fast that they would have been pretty stupid to get in the way!

    I was watching that game because I’m from Venezuela. He actually does that a lot, but our pitches are a lot smaller and I thought that he wouldn’t dare to do it at so much distance, when the ball went straight to the net I couldn’t believe it, a “put it where you want it” style. Qué golazo, José Manuel Rey es un guevo, vamos Venezuela!
