Geoffrey Scovil is an attorney in Albuquerque, New Mexico, specializing in Habeas Corpus law. Outside of work, Geoffrey Scovil enjoys watching soccer, and his favorite team is FC Barcelona. The iconic team recently added another of its players to the free-kick club, which is comprised of players who have scored a goal from a direct free kick.
Luis Suárez, who has scored a staggering 88 total goals for Barcelona, joined the free-kick club during the team’s Spanish league match against Real Betis on August 20th. FC Barcelona won the match 6-2, thanks in part to Suárez’ hat trick, which included his first direct free-kick goal for the club.
Luis Suárez joins the ranks of teammates like Ivan Rakitic and Jeremy Mathieu, who have each also scored a free-kick goal. Neymar Jr., who recently won a gold medal playing for Brazil in the Summer Olympic Games, has scored two free-kick goals for Barcelona. Of course, these all pale in comparison to the team’s star, Leo Messi, who has scored a total of 23 free-kick goals for Barça. Aside from cementing Suárez’ name in club history, the win against Betis provided a good start to the team’s Spanish league title defense.
