Rafael Crivellaro bagged his first goal of the Indian Super League (ISL 2020-21) in style as he scored directly from a corner kick during the 2-1 win over FC Goa on Saturday. This is the third time in the ISL that a goal has been directly scored from a corner.
The Chennaiyin captain put his side ahead in the fifth minute with a fantastic curling corner kick from the left that sailed past FC Goa goalkeeper Mohammad Nawaz and slotted into the top corner.
Former Chennaiyin midfielder Bruno Pelissari, also a Brazilian, had scored from a corner in 2015.
Chennaiyin won its first corner in the fourth minute and Crivellaro swung it in towards goal, but Nawaz managed to parry it away. However, the Goa custodian could do nothing to keep out the resulting corner.
