Making his debut for Botafogo (on loan from Audax Rio), 21-year-old Botafogo striker Hyuri decided that the best way to introduce himself to his new teammates is with incredible goals. He started off by scoring in the 40th minute of Botafogo's match against Coritiba to make it 2-0, but that was only the warm-up.
A mere nine minutes later, Hyuri barreled towards goal and when the Coritiba defender converged on him, he navigated his way through them with the ball stuck to his feet. At one point he is surrounded by three opponents, but he stopped, turned, maintained control of the ball and fired a perfect strike into the far side of the net.
Botafogo went on to win 3-1 and now Hyuri has set a very high standard for the rest of his stay with the club.
Be sure to watch all the replays to fully appreciate what he was able to do.
