    Nice goal, BUT there are two fouls on the play by an RC teammate. Note the guy who lets the ball pass under his leg and into the goal. 1) He is in an offside position and clearly was involved in the play. 2) Note that he left the field of play to evidently tie his shoe and re-enters without permission just as the kick is taken. Nice ploy, but not permitted. Such is Brazilian league play. This diminishes RC's nice shot. MO

    MO - Get the laws of the game straight. Cannot be offside from a CK. Also the player left the field while pursuing the first ball and the CK was taken quickly thus negating both your points.
