Internacional beat Novo Hamburgo 2-1, but the losing side's Luis Henrique takes the Nigel De Jong Award for cleanest kick to an opponent's chest. After kicking the ball away just before Inter's Raphinha could get to it, Henrique made sure he kept his distance by continuing his follow through right into Raphinha's chest.

The leg extension was impressive, but it wasn't until later in the match when Henrique elbowed an opponent in the head that he was finally shown a yellow card.

After the match, Henrique defended himself on Facebook by saying, "Football is a contact sport. If you don't want contact, go play volleyball."
