Bent: Bolivian Curls A Free Kick For An Amazing Score In Copa America Game

Posted by:

A tense game between Chile and Bolivia brought a moment of soccer glory Friday night: Just three minutes after entering the game, Jhasmani Campos arced a free kick over the wall and into the net, setting off cheers in Foxborough’s Gillette Stadium.

Campos used his left foot and just the right blend of spin and power to send the ball into the top corner of the far side of the goal, past Chile’s leaping goalkeeper. We’ll let you watch it for yourself, in this video posted by Fox Sports.
