However, Ceni managed to stick one away at the wrong end with terrific panache against Nautico in the Campeanato on Wednesday night coming to punch a corner clear, only to see the ball ricochet off his triangular knuckles at an almost physics-defying angle and then loop up and down over the heads of three hapless Sao Paulo defenders left agog on the goal-line.
