Video: Brazilian goalkeeper boots worst free-kick ever?
There are reasons why goalkeepers primarily use their hands rather than their feet to play the position. The Qatar Stars League match pitting El Jaish SC against Al Rayyan provided another one.
Watch as El Jaish SC goalie Evanildo Rodrigues delivers what may go down as the worst free-kick in soccer history. The Brazilian shot-stopper somehow manages to shank the ball 90-degrees right despite not having any defensive pressure around him to speak of.
It is truly one of those spectacles that is so bad that it may actually be good.
Evanildo's team went on to blank the opposition, 1-0, to tally the win.
However, his unfortunate folly will likely live on forever.
