The Only Goal You Need to See This Weekend: Luis Suarez Bends a Beauty (Video)

Michael Cummings@MikeCummings37World Football Lead WriterAugust 26, 2012

Did Joe Hart set up the wall too close to the near post? Maybe.

Should Jack Rodwell have done more to stop the kick as it went around him? Possibly.

Was Luis Suarez's free kick against Manchester City an absolute beauty? Definitely.

Suarez curled a precision free kick around the Manchester City wall and into Hart's net to give Liverpool a second-half Sunday at Anfield. The lead didn't last—the match finished in a 2-2 draw—but Suarez's goal was a great example of an expert scoring from a free kick.

The video appears above. It is the Set Piece goal of the weekend. Enjoy.

The strike was Suarez's first league goal of the new season for Liverpool. The Uruguayan scored 17 times in all competitions during last season's controversy-filled campaign.

Before Sunday, Suarez's last league goals came April 28, when he scored a memorable hat trick against Norwich City.
