Move over, Messi: Brazilian goalkeeper scores stunning free-kick (VIDEO)
Brazilian goalkeeper Everson Felipe Marques Pires proved he’s not only a safe pair of hands but also deadly with the ball at his feet, scoring a stunning free-kick for Ceara in their league win against Corinthians.

Everson, 28, curled a 20-yard strike into the opposition net on 19 minutes to open the scoring for his team, who ran out 2-1 winners at the Estádio Castelão on Wednesday.

The ‘keeper has previously said he takes inspiration from cult goalscoring ‘keeper Rogerio Ceni, who scored a staggering 131 career goals.

Judging by Everson’s effort, seen below, he is well on the way to emulating the famous Brazilian dead ball specialist.

Everson even wears the same number on his shirt – 01 – in a nod to Ceni, who scored 61 free-kicks and 69 penalties in his 25-year career at Sao Paolo, which came to an end in 2015.   

Wednesday’s win helped lift struggling Caera to 18th in the 20-team Serie A table, level on 23 points with Recife. Corinthians sit eight on 30 points.
