A imagem da cobrança de Jancarlos ganhou destaque internacional nesta sexta-feira. A foto do jogador virou o "Shot of the day" no site oficial da FIFA, na qual o meia argentino Gallardo fecha os olhos para a cobrança do segundo gol. A foto foi tirada pelo fotógrafo Orlando Kissner, da AFP.

Eyes closed, hoping for the best, the man on the end of the River Plate wall sums up the Argentine outfit’s helplessness as they succumb to the dead ball mastery of Atletico Paranaense’s Jancarlos. Los Millionarios had gone into this Copa Nissan Sudamericana 2006 Round of 16, second leg tie trailing 1-0 thanks to a surprise defeat in their own Monumental stadium and though Marcello Gallardo and Danilo Gerlo were both on target, two superbly struck free-kicks from Jancarlos secured Atletico a 2-2 draw at the Arena Kyocera Stadium in Curitiba and, with it, a place in the quarter-finals. Brazil’s only remaining representatives now face a quarter-final date with Uruguay’s Nacional, who made a doubly bad day for both Buenos Aires’ rival clubs by eliminating Boca Juniors.
