WATCH: Chain's Tan Ruyin scored a 40-yard screamer at the Olympics

China won the game 2-0 against South Africa

We're still in the early stages of the Olympics, and the football tournament hasn't heated up quite yet.

Despite that, however, there's a good chance that we might have already seen the goal of the tournament after China's Tan Ruyin doubled her side's advantage late on in the game against South Africa.

Striking from just in front of the half-way line, Ruyin's shot just had the legs to fly past goalkeeper Roxanne Barker, who got a hand to the effort but was unable to keep it out, as it smashed in off the bar and bounced over the line. 

The goal sealed a 2-0 win for China, condeming South Africa to their second defeat and getting their first three points on the board.

China will take on Sweden in their next match, while things don't get any easier for South Aftrica, who will have to face hosts Brazil.
