With 93 minutes already played, and the score 0-0, Braga won a free-kick just inside their own half.

Viana, showing the vision that has been a trademark of his style throughout his career, noticed the keeper off his line and lobbed Portimonense's Sergio from his own half.

"I saw the goalkeeper advance, the ball was there and I took a chance and it went flawlessly," Viana said after the game.

"Is it the best of my career? Yes, maybe, it is a goal from 50 metres, it's not just any goal is it!"
