People talk about powerful shooting. Roberto Carlos, Ronald Koeman etc. But what about Eder? He must have been in a class of his own. I heard someone measured his freekicks to be as powerful as 174 km/h. Koeman had his at about 113 km/h. R.Carlos just below that again. Any comments to that?

May be I messed up the km/h thing, but I'm pretty sure Eder's was the most powerful. tonyp3, that freekick you are talking about was in WC 1982 against Argentina. It was a fantastic free-kick and would have been one of the goals of WC history hadn't Fillol got a fingertip to it. He just managed to tip it on to the crossbar and Zico was there to tap it home from 2 yards out.

Ze da Fiel, yeah I remember Eder missed the WC 86. That was sad. He wasn't that old at the time. About 28-29 I'd say.
