VIDEO: Damian Diaz starts off Copa Libertadores with a stunning goal

Mike Stobe

Damian Diaz got Copa Libertadores off to as good of a start as one could imagine.

What's the best way to start a tournament? How about a 25-yard rocket on the half-volley?

Barcelona SC's Damian Diaz made it happen.

The first goal of the 2013 Copa Libertadores, ladies and gentlemen. May the rest of the tournament live up to the impossible high bar that Diaz has set.
