Watch: Gremio's Jael bends home stunning free-kick in derby rout

Gremio

The pick of the goals from Brazil last night: Jael's swirling 30-yarder – and against his team's arch-rivals too

As much as FFT loves the knuckleball technique, there's something timeless about a more traditional free-kick - the swirling, bending type that curves away from the goalkeeper at the last minute and nestles in the top corner.

On Sunday night, Gremio's Jael provided the perfect example in his team's 3-0 win over hated rivals Internacional in the first leg of their state championship quarter-final. 

It was the 29-year-old's third goal in five games of the tournament which precedes 2018's Serie A league season, and gave his team a commanding 2-0 lead midway through the second half. Nice.
