Watch: Kevin de Bruyne Catches Cardiff Out With Cheeky Free-Kick

Watch: Kevin de Bruyne Catches Cardiff Out With Cheeky Free-Kick
By Arthur James O'Dea Updated

One of football's most delightful sights, Kevin de Bruyne has taken an exquisite skill and elevated it again.

There can rarely, if ever, be any doubt of a free-taker's intention when he decides to hit the ball under the opposition wall.

To his discredit, Cardiff City's goalkeeper Neil Etheridge may regret having given the Belgian quite so much of his goal to target.

Standing incredibly close to the opposite post, it is hard to imagine how Etheridge would have gotten across the goal in time even if he did read de Bruyne's intention.

Yet, with incredible aplomb, one of Man City's most decisive players this season produced an absolute moment of magic.

More impressive still is the relative slowness with which the ball crossed the line. Raheem Sterling would add a second later in the half, and, in truth, Cardiff never really looked like causing an upset.

You can watch the goal below.
