There are many great players, but few are as legendary as Juan Roman Riquelme. The 35-year-old Boca Juniors midfielder displayed some of his own magic in El Superclasico against River Plate. Just 10 minutes after going down 1-0 in the second half, the Boca captain knocked a perfect free kick off the crossbar to equalize and set off a wave of jubilation in La Bombonera.
The happiness was short lived though, as River scored again in the 86th minute to win 2-1 in the most hostile of territories.
Whether you're a Boca fan or not, take a moment to appreciate Riquelme and his set-piece artistry because there might not be many left.
