Special Juan; Riquelme scores a beautiful free-kick for Boca Juniors in El Superclasico

He might be 35 these days, but Juan Roman Riquelme still knows how to hit the top corner from 25 yards.

Heading to a game between Boca Juniors and River Plate at the Bombonera should be on every football fan's 'must see' list. Called El Superclasico, the game is always worth watching for the atmosphere alone, and last night's clash also served up a  peach of a goal via an Argentine legend.

River Plate took the lead around the hour mark but the sides were level after Juan Roman Riquelme did this.

Never lost it, eh?

Sadly for Riquelme, the goal didn't inspire a fairly insipid Boca and in the 86th minute, Ramiro Funes Mori headed home a winner for the visitors.

It was Plate's first win at the home of their fiercest rivals in a decade.
