Botafogo stormed to a 3-1 victory over Coritiba at the Maracanã on Thursday, with two goals from débutant Hyuri Henrique de Oliveira Costa, the second of which was something a bit special, as you can see in the video below.

Rafael Marques opened the scoring, before passing the limelight to former Audax Rio forward who only signed for Botafogo a couple of months ago. His chance in the first team came thanks to the recent sale of Vitinho, and the fact that Nicolas Loderio was away on international duty with Uruguay.

Hyuri, born on the 26th of September 1991, will turn 22 this month and has now staked his claim for a place in the Botafogo line-up for the rest of the season.

Below is the video of his second goal on his first appearance for Botafogo, at the Maracanã no less, which the player and the fans will never forget.
