In the end, a top of the table clash between Manchester United and Tottenham at Old Trafford was decided in the most route one way imaginable. In the 81st minute, David de Gea launched one upfield at Romelu Lukaku. The Belgian striker's towering flick unlocked the Spurs defense, Anthony Martial, on as a 70th minute substitute, got on the end of it and dispatched his shot beyond Hugo Lloris in goal. In between, the narrative stayed pretty true to form.
“Chucky” Lozano is on fire. He wakes up, he scores. He brushes his teeth, he scores. He calls his grandma to see how she’s doing, he scores. He plays for PSV Eindhoven, he scores.
Maybe it is because Halloween is drawing near and “Chucky”, the murderous doll, is giving Lozano some kind of supernatural inspiration. Maybe it’s just because Hirving Lozano is Mexico’s foremost rising star and he will make Chicharito look like a schoolboy in the near future. The fact is Lozano simply cannot stop scoring.
A bit of absolute tomfoolery was accomplished in the Romanian Cup on Wednesday when 14-year-old Ianis Stoica was handed his professional debut in Steaua Bucharest’s match against Sanatatea Cluj as a substitute and duly scored in the 92nd minute of his side’s 6-1 victory.
At the age of 14 years, ten months and 13 days, Stoica is now the youngest ever goalscorer in the history of the 26-time Romanian champions.
Former AC Milan midfielder Keisuke Honda is currently living his best life with Pachuca in Liga MX, as evidenced by the banger he scored against Zacatepec in the Copa MX.
With Pachuca up 1-0 in the 36th minute, Honda cut inside on his left foot and uncorked an Arjen Robben special.
So we’re 10 match days into Serie A action and the stupid levels of excitement coming out of Italy show no signs of abating. After Wednesday’s midweek matches, we find Napoli at the top of the table with INTER MILAN two points back. Right behind them we have six-time defending champions Juventus and then Lazio. We’d be remiss not to mention Roma as well — they still have a game in hand on the clubs above them.
Borussia Dortmund’s Raphaël Guerreiro made a return to the pitch after four months on Tuesday in the DFB Pokal, coming on in the 63rd minute of a 5-0 rout of FC Magdeberg. But he did something more incredible during training on Wednesday.
Apparently happy to be back and playing after breaking his foot in the Confederations Cup with Portugal in June, Guerreiro scored a whimsical, pirouetting goal with his heel that somehow found the upper 90 during practice.
Terens Puhiri is faster than you. He is faster than me. He is faster than all of us. Terens Puhiri can outrun the earth and the moon and the stars and, dare I say it, even time itself. He has run around solar systems and galaxies. He knows the answers to all of your questions, but he's too busy running fast to answer them. Is there life somewhere else in the universe? Do some quad stretches and find out. He ran through all the alternate realities and says this one's pretty weird, as far as realities go. Apparently there's one where kangaroos are worshipped as Gods.
