The game had been talked up as an early season battle between possible title contenders, and didn’t disappoint. Hosts Corinthians eventually took the three points after a 2-0 win, but all the post-match talk was about their midfielder Jadson.

The 31 year old Brazlian supplied the assist for Elias’ opener, then added the second himself. The only catch…? He’s on loan from Sao Paulo! He joined the 5-times Brazilian champions back in January 2014, signing an extension on his original 1 year deal as recently as two weeks ago.

You can see the two goals in the video below. The first is a particularly impressive feat of one-touch build-up play.

Samba style!!
