      Always heard great things about him but he's too young, never played in the 1st team, so I can't say anything. I'm not even sure if I ever saw him play, probably in some youth competition but that's it.

      Yes, the other Lucas is already a first team player for São Paulo FC. He shone in the South American under 20 earlier this year with Brazil and is already very important for his club, probably their best at the moment. He's pure class, lots of potential and still only 18. Plays as an attacking midfielder/right winger, would love if Liverpool went after him.

      Today the goalkeeper Rogério Ceni scored the 100th goal of his career.

      I really dislike him as a person, but you have to understand why he's São Paulo FC greatest idol of all time. In 20 years at the club, he has won every title he could with them, making great saves (he was the MOTM in the World Club Championship vs Liverpool in 2005) and scoring a lot of goals in the way.

      Number of gols year by year:

      1997 - 3 (3 free kicks)
      1998 - 2 (2 free kicks)
      1999 - 5 (3 free kicks & 2 penalties)
      2000 - 7 (6 free kicks & 1 penalty)
      2001 - 2 (2 free kicks)
      2002 - 5 (5 free kicks)
      2003 - 2 (2 free kicks)
      2004 - 5 (4 free kicks & 1 penalty)
      2005 - 21 (11 free kicks & 10 penalties)
      2006 - 16 (10 penalties & 6 free kicks)
      2007 - 10 (8 penalties & 2 free kicks)
      2008 - 5 (4 penalties & 1 free kick)
      2009 - 2 (2 free kicks)
      2010 - 8 (6 penalties & 2 free kicks)
      2011 so far - 5 (3 free kicks & 2 penalties)

      To make it even better for their fans, his 100th goal gave São Paulo a win against their arch rivals Corinthians. It was a brilliantly taken free kick btw, as you can see here:

      That's some going! Great record for a keeper. I remember buying him on FM a few years back and he was pretty decent in it. He has scored in every season now for a good while but did he take any set pieces in the years before he started scoring them?

      I think the best ever Malaysian footballer was Mokhtar Dahari.

      In 1975, Malaysia beat Arsenal 2-0 with Mokhtar scoring two goals. It was rumoured he was offered a chance to play for Arsenal.

      Also, he dribbled past half the England team to score in the 1-1 draw in 1978.

      He passed away at 38 years of age from Muscular dystrophy. Don't think Malaysia will ever have a player like him anymore.

      I believe he has scored more from free kicks than Ronaldo, Messi , and many more supposedly great takers. Being a good player dont guarantee being good at FKs.

      Best taker you ever saw?
      Ill go with Pablo Javier Bengoechea. He scored maybe 1 out of 3, and most impresing was that he ALWAYS scored when his team needed( the equalizer or the one to take lead).
      Another one was Juninho, great taker. And dont get me started about old Brazilian players.
      Folha seca! Take it away Diego!!

      Have to throw a Dutch name in there QuicoGalante, Ronald Koeman. Had a fantastic right foot, great long distance shots and free kicks. Scored almost 200 goals in a bit over 500 games, not bad for a center back.

      Those who have watched Zico play regularly says he was one of the best free kick takers ever. I have many Flamengo classic matches on DVD and he really was brilliant at that, hard to say if he was the best not having seen him play in a regular basis though. The goal he always picks as the most important of his career came on a free kick, against Cobreloa in the Copa Libertadores 1981 Final.

      I don't know the exact amount of freekicks mate, I just know alot of them were freekicks and long distance shots, but he did take penalties too. He's actually the highest scoring defender in the history of football. He's a legend at Barcelona because of it, made the winning and only goal in the 1992 Champions League final aswell with a freekick.

      Ronald Koeman

      And yeah Diego, my dad used used to always tell me Zico was the best freekicktaker aswell.

      And don't forget that cheeky one v England in Rotterdam in 93.

      Dead man watches football match at the stadium; Colombia perplexed

      Police in the Colombian city of Cucuta were investigating Monday who allowed a dead body in a casket into the stadium for the match between Cucuta Deportivo and Envigado.

      The body of Christopher Jacome, 17, unsettled many in the stands for the Sunday Colombian championship game, which ended 1-1.

      Cucuta hooligans brought the casket into the stadium as a tribute to Jacome, who was one of their number and was murdered Saturday as he played football in a local park.

      Fellow hooligans apparently wanted him to be able to go to the stadium 'one last time,' the Cucuta daily La Opinion reported Monday, so they took the body from the funeral home where a wake was being held.

      Cucuta Police commander Alvaro Pico described this as 'an unfortunate incident' and said some of those carrying the casket had been identified.

      Cucuta Deportivo's doctor, Julio Rivera, was 'perplexed' that authorities announce strict controls on stadiums to bar violent hooligans from entering and yet let those hooligans inside the stadium with a corpse.

      'They will not let in the hooligans, but they do let in a corpse. This is the only place in the world where such a thing happens,' he said.

      Was at the Centenario yesterday for the Libertadores clash between Peñarol and Godoy Cruz.
      The Amsterdam lads were the best. I recorded just a bit of the salute to the team.
      Peñarol won 2-1 and look great to get into the final 16, currently leading the group. Lets hope we can finally nail the 6th Cup, so elusive. We won the 5th on 87!

      For everybody who's interested in Dutch league football, the probably most important game of the season starts in 15 minutes. FC Twente - PSV. With 6 games to go PSV is 1st in the league, 1 point ahead of 2nd placed FC Twente.

      Brilliant game so far, but still 0-0 at halftime. Twente much better, PSV knocked the ball from the goalline twice, once with a hand even so should've been a penalty.
