Barcelona’s Vitor Roque scores stunning goal for Athletico Paranaense

Barcelona fans eagerly await the moment when Vitor Roque wears the Barça jersey, and they are anticipating more spectacular goals like the one he netted on Tuesday. 

Despite his official signing with Barça, Roque won’t move to the club until 2024. His brilliance was evident in a recent Brazilian Serie A match between his current team, Athletico Paranaense, and Goiás. In the 39th minute of the first half, with the scoreline level, Roque skillfully received a ball near the left touchline. He swiftly maneuvered diagonally into the penalty area, momentarily evading opposition players by stepping back, deftly controlling the ball with his right foot, and hitting a perfect swerving shot into the top right-hand corner of the net.

The goal drew applause from spectators who rose from their seats, and the clip of his remarkable strike flooded social media. 

Despite his strike, the goal wasn’t enough to secure a victory for his team, as the home team equalised in the 81st minute. Nonetheless, Roque’s goal did earn his team a valuable point in their away game.
