Brazilian football often throws up the odd outrageous goal or two, but this strike from Cruzeiro's Nilton on Thursday stood out from the bunch.
Watching carefully as a corner from the right arrived, Nilton rotated in the air to meet the ball with the outside of his boot and send a sensational volley past the Botafogo keeper.
After the impressive 3-0 win, Nilton revealed that the unique strike was inspired by altinha - the foot-volley game that is played on Brazil's sunny beaches.
"It's nice to see the fans that way, all in blue and white, with a bit of excitement," he said.
"For the goal, I was thrilled. That was the nicest way I caught the ball. It is no coincidence, I grew up playing altinha, and that uses outside of the foot.
"I used this once and it was an indefensible shot."
