Angel Chourio may not be a familiar name outside of South America, but the Mineros de Guayana midfielder lit up the Copa Sudamericana on Thursday night by scoring a superb volley against Ecuadorian champions Barcelona.
The 28-year-old Venezuela international struck midway through the first half, firing a remarkable outside-of-the-boot volley from the edge of the penalty area past the helpless Barcelona goalkeeper Maximo Banguera.
Chourio was teed-up by a clever pass by the one-time Argentina international Nicolas Olmedo, who was called up by former coach Diego Maradona to play Haiti in 2010.
Mineros went on to draw the match 2-2, leaving the first-stage tie delicately poised ahead of next week's second leg.
The Copa Sudamericana - South America's equivalent of the Europa League - concludes with a two-legged final in December.
