Diego Forlan Scores Two Brilliant Free-Kicks In One Game

Diego Forlan Scores Two Brilliant Free-Kicks In One Game

Diego Forlan has still got it - scoring a hat-trick that included two free-kicks today.

The Uruguayan legend is now 38 and turns out for Kitchee in the Hong Kong Premier League after spending two years with Mumbai City.

There's no doubt he's not the player that scored goals on a regular basis for Villarreal, Atletico Madrid and Inter Milan earlier in his career.

But's shown he's still got a bit about him with this brilliant hat-trick against Warriors this afternoon.

The first is a superb free-kick, the second is an even better one and the third is just a nice finish that puts the cherry on a great hat-trick:

It's good to see Forlan continuing to do the business, even at 38.

He'll obviously be well remembered by Manchester United from his time at Old Trafford between 2002 and 2004.

He didn't score the goals he would have liked to while at Sir Alex Ferguson's men, but you wonder if that would have been the case had he joined them later on in his career?

The well-travelled striker joined Hong Kong champions Kitchee FC earlier this month and has wasted no time in showcasing his supreme talents, curling in a beauty from around 30 yards out against BC Rangers.

Forlan had been without a club for over a year, but is now playing in Asia for the third time in his decorated career.

He turned out for Indian Super League side Mumbai City in 2016, with the spell ending very briefly. Prior to that, he played a season at his boyhood club Penarol in Uruguay, following on from a stint at Cerezo Osaka in Japan.

The joint Golden Boot winner in the 2010 World Cup, where he scored five goals with the controversial Jabulani football, he is also a two-time recipient of the European Golden shoe.
