Juan Roman Riquelme decided to retire from football in 2012, but came out of retirement the next year and returned to Boca Juniors, presumably with the intention of scoring more golazos like this:


The playmaker whipped a free-kick over the wall and into the corner to level Sunday's Superclasico against River Plate at 1-1 midway through the second half.

Unfortunately for him, however, River took the spoils with an 86th-minute goal from Ramiro Funes Mori.
