Indirect free kicks in the penalty area are one of soccer’s rarest occurrences, mostly due to the handful of circumstances that can create them. We featured one from Carlos Tevez a few weeks ago, and here’s another that happened last night in Colombia’s top division as Cortuluá’s Carlos Ibargüen hammered one home against Patriotas to put the home side up 2-0. The keeper almost managed to get his hands on this one, but Ibargüen’s placement was just too perfect.

(Since someone will ask: this IFK resulted from a handled pass back to the keeper.)
