Video: Luis Boa Morte scores outrageous/slightly illegal penalty in charity game

Posted by Chris Wright

If you, like us, have been wondering just where Luis Boa Morte had gotten to these days then wonder no longer. Allow us to fill you in.

The man almost never referred to as Mr Good Death resurfaced on Sunday evening playing in a "Luis Figo XI" in a charity exhibition game against Venezuelan league champions Deportivo Anzoategui, scoring a couple of goals in a 3-2 victory for his side.

The second of his two goals, which levelled the score at 2-2, came from the spot, with Boa Morte putting the Deportivo keeper on his backside with a razzmatazz dummy before slotting the cheeky penalty into the corner...



All totally illegal of course thanks to the stop/start run-up, but you should never let little things like "the rules" get in the way of scoring an outrageous spot-kick!
