Robinho turns back the clock to score for Brazil in Copa America Quarters

Robinho became Robinho circa 2007 for Brazil’s Copa America Quarterfinal game against Paraguay as he scored the opening goal of the game. As you can see, the goal wasn’t as much a beauty but it was a great team goal. Dani Alves put up a rather ordinary cross and as it trickled into the box, Robinho hit it home.

It wasn’t that clean of a hit but it didn’t need to be. Robinho got enough that Paraguay couldn’t keep the ball out and Brazil went up 1-0.

And don’t fret Brazil fans. If you want skill and beauty, Coutinho provided that with this sick move a few minutes later.
