Juan Quintero Scores Direct Free-Kick Dubbed One Of The 'Greatest Of All Time'

Juan Quintero Scores Direct Free-Kick Dubbed One Of The 'Greatest Of All Time'

I've seen some absolute rockets down the years but Colombian international Juan Fernando Quintero bagged one of the best free-kick's I've ever seen in River Plate's win over league leaders Racing Club, last night.

Quintero stepped up from 30-yards, took a short run-up and somehow managed to curl one right into the top corner, leaving goalkeeper Gabriel Arias helpless between the sticks.

It has since been described as one of the best direct free-kicks of all time, and I'm fully on board with that statement.

Take a bow, son.

River Plate went on to win the match 2-0 thanks to an own goal from Alejandro Donatti, but Marcelo Gallardo's side remain a massive 14 points behind league leaders Racing Club.

This isn't the first time Quintero has scored a screamer in recent months.

Back in December, the 26-year-old scored an extra-time screamer during River's 3-1 victory over Boca Juniors in the Copa Libertadores.

With the scores level at 1-1 in extra time, the Santiago Bernabéu erupted when the 25-year-old attacking midfielder struck a peach of a curler past the Boca Juniors 'keeper.

He's the man for the big occasion, that's for sure.
