There are lots of flashy ways to score goals these days, but Brazil's Roberto Firmino pulled out a rare one against Chile on Sunday: score without looking. 

The Hoffenheim midfielder pulled the move while scoring the only goal in Brazil's 1-0 win over Chile in a friendly match at London's Emirates Stadium. Danilo supplied the pinpoint pass from midfield, while Firmino rounded the goalkeeper, looked away, and tapped the ball in.  

Firmino has every reason to be feeling confident lately. The Brazilian is enjoying another solid season at Hoffenhiem, in which he has scored six goals and added seven assists. Sunday's goal is Firmino's second with the Seleçao, coming in his fourth appearance with the team. Brazil won the game, 1-0.
