Top of the table Benfica routed Feirense 4-0 yesterday, with the final goal coming on a stoppage time free kick by Alejandro Grimaldo. As shown on TV, there was some pre-free kick shenanigans, but nothing too special.

But in this video shot from the stands, you can see first Victor Lindelöf and then José Gomes attempt to disrupt the wall, before getting shoved away. Finally, old-ass man and Benfica captain Luisão trots in and shows the young bucks how it’s done, attracting the attention of both the wall and the keeper before Grimaldo’s free kick loops over the outside of the wall.
