Maybe Chile’s Arturo Vidal really wants to see Paraguay earn a spot in the 2018 World Cup.

We’ve seen some spectacular own goals this year, from Colorado’s Jared Watts to Young Boys’ Kasim Adams Nuhu, but few ever have the genuine look of a dynamite goal.

Furthermore, we’ve seen Vidal score a lot of great goals, so his clinical finish of a Paraguay free kick beyond his backstop is almost impossible for a brain to process.

If Paraguay holds on to beat Chile — it’s halftime as of this post’s time — Los Guaraníes will be within two points of their Thursday hosts and closer to moving into the all-important Top Five in CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying.
