Ex-Man United winger Bebe scores 40-yard free-kick at AFCON - he does it often 

Former Man United winger Bebe scored a screamer as Cape Verde beat Mozambique to become the first team to book their last-16 place at the Africa Cup of Nations.

The 33-year-old - who was born in Portugal and only started playing for Cape Verde in 2022 - struck direct from a free-kick taken more than 40 yards from goal.

Mozambique keeper Ernan perhaps should have done better, although the ball appeared to swerve violently in the air.

Bebe made a surprise move to Man United in 2010 but managed just two appearances in four years. He is currently on loan at Real Zaragoza from Rayo Vallecano.

There, the 33-year-old seems to have developed a knack for attempting wide-range efforts.

His La Liga shot map since the start of last season shows 64 shots, around 5.3 per game, from an astonishing average distance of 30.2 yards.

In 2022, he scored a sensational free-kick in his team's Copa del Rey semi-final against Real Betis. Just a year before, he notched a 35-yard free-kick for Vallecano in the Segunda Division.
