A Brazilian footballer has scored an incredible wonder goal, rocketing a 45-yard free kick from inside the centre circle into the top corner to save his side from relegation.

Inca, the captain of Paraguayan top-flight side Sol de America, scored the astonishing goal to secure a 2-1 away victory against title-chasing Olimpia - and in so doing stave off the threat of relegation for his club.

"The big thing was that my team-mates trusted me to have a go at it," the 36-year-old said.

"Above all I want to thank them for letting me have a try. And thanks to God it was a goal!"
