Needed to find a home for this post so said I’d set up a new thread.
Was watching highlights of Independiente and Boca Juniors there from last night.
Martin Palermo got a ridiculously good goal. It was similar to David Beckham’s famous one except he didn’t have the same time as DB to size up the strike. An opposing defender had the ball on the half way line and tried to knock a ball out wide. Palermo stuck out his leg to block the ball and it kind of hit him in the thigh and fell at his feet. In one quick movement he just launched the ball from inside his own half, over the keeper’s head and into the net.
Riquelme also set up 2 goals for Boca with sublime through balls.
