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

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.
