Video: Brazilian futsal star Falcao scores astonishing 360 degree 'reverse rainbow flick' freekick goal

Posted by Chris Wright

Long before Atletico Madrid's goal-glutton striker of the same name was a mere twinkle in his father's eye*, veteran Brazilian futsal legend Falcao was tearing it up on the five-a-side scene with his outrageous footwork and immaculate close control.

Now aged 35, Falcao is showing no signs of becoming any less awesome as he enters the twilight of his career, with his frankly astounding '360-degree reverse rainbow flick' freekick goal in a recent exhibition match between Atletico against Estrelas demonstrating perfectly why he's almost universally regarded as the best futsal player of his generation...

Not bad. Not bad at all.
