And anyone who has followed Quaresma’s rollercoaster career so far will know exactly how he executed his truly wonderful finish.

The enigmatic Portuguese star has nailed down his ‘Trivela’ signature move down the years, whether it’s shooting or crossing.

And on the biggest stage of all, Quaresma did what he does best.

Collecting the ball out wide, the winger played a near one-two with Adrien Silva which created space on the edge of the Iran box.

While others might have looked up to find a team-mate – namely Cristiano Ronaldo – Quaresma instead audaciously picked out the top corner with a sensational finish with the outside of his boot.

He couldn’t, could he?

It was Quaresma’s first ever World Cup goal on his first start at a World Cup.

He might not be a model of consistency, but Quaresma’s special move deserves to be one of the most iconic skills of his generation.

Because nobody else does it like him.
