As one of the fleetest-footed footballers in the world, Neymar is subject to a lot of physical abuse. Always wanting to take opponents on with his dazzling skills, defenders are often forced to resort to violence to stop the Brazilian.
But you can’t stop a perfect free kick, and Neymar punished Red Star Belgrade with just such a shot in the Champions League on Wednesday in Paris.
The legend of 37-year-old Swedish midfielder Kennedy Bakircioglu grew today after the Hammarby IF legend hammered a free kick in the 79th minute of a 3-0 victory over Goteborg before celebrating by catching a beer and chugging it.
When you’ve made nearly 300 appearances for your club, scored almost 100 goals, been capped by Sweden 14 times and are now just a month away from your 38th birthday, you’ve earned yourself a cold one.
What’s incredible is that the goal is every bit as good as the celly. What a hit.
