Is Elano’s 40-Meter Free Kick Soccer’s Goal Of The Year (Video)

by: JamieD On  Monday, March 21, 2011

Most soccer players wouldn’t even think about having an attempt on goal from 40 meters out, but most soccer players can’t kick a ball quite like Elano Blumer.

The Brazilian international was showing off his range during a Copa Libertadores match against Colo Colo, as he let loose on a lengthy free-kick that whistled through the air and into the top corner of the net for what may very well be soccer’s goal of the year.¬† Unfortunately, it was not enough, as his Santos club would fall to Colo Colo by a score of 3-2.

It may not have earned his team the win, but this goal will certainly earn Elano plenty of recognition from highlight reel packages around the world.
