Outrageous assist in Brazilian futsal game

World of Sport

The futsal courts of Brazil are famously rich in silky skills but star player Falcao seems to be on a personal mission to take the game to another level.

Already we've seen the Orlândia ace score a ridiculous spinning 360-degree backheeled free-kick, and in this latest footage the 'Pele of futsal' once again delivers with a jaw-dropping piece of skill.

Having received the ball from a team-mate, Falcao provides one of the best assists you'll ever see: a sublime rabona pass (the one where the kicking leg is wrapped around the back of the standing leg) that perfectly picks out Renan, who had dummied over the initial pass before continuing his run.

And the finish isn't too shoddy either: Renan watches the ball over his shoulder before neatly volleying past the Palmeiras keeper and into the back of the net.

A truly stunning team goal - but don't just take our word for it, watch for yourselves in the video below.
