Riquelme still brilliant at 36

[VIDEO PICK: Golazo] Argentine playmaker Juan Roman Riquelme has always been one of the most delightful players to watch for how he makes the difficult look easy, how smoothly he plays.

He hasn't appeared for Argentina's national team since 2008, when he helped it win the Olympic gold medal.

Now, at age 36, he's playing for second division Argentinos Juniors, for which he scored his second goal with this game-winning free kick against top tier Racing Club in the Argentine Cup.

Riquelme's strike comes from the wing and the goalkeeper may have been expecting a cross, only to be beaten at the far post.

It gave Argentinos Juniors a 1-0 win.
