Defenders In Serie A Are Still Terrifying

This is a really good goal from AC Milan’s Suso, and it rescued a point in the 85th minute for his side against Lazio. But what really sticks out is how apeshit the Lazio defenders go after watching Suso dribble through them all.

A win for Lazio would’ve taken them to fourth, and you can tell just how devastating this late goal was. In Italy, the land of catenaccio and solid defensive organization, Suso’s ability to drift between defenders and leave two Lazio players on the floor just isn’t acceptable.

This Goal Would Earn You A Gold Medal At The X Games

I have no clue what this is. Perugia’s Francesco Nicastro stuck this Christ Air aerial trick while playing a football match I guess. Why did he attempt to mirror the move invented by the great Christian Hosoi? I don’t know. Perhaps we’re seeing the birth of a new period in the sport where skateboarding and football meld together like never before, creating the kind of game that only FIFA Chief Officer for Technical Development Marco van Basten could appreciate.

Moussa Dembele Scored Two Straight Hat Tricks In Scotland

At Celtic, Swedish striker Henrik Larsson was known as the King of Goals.

Call 20-year-old Frenchman Moussa Dembele the Prince.

For the second consecutive week, Dembele, on whom the Hoops have reportedly slapped a £40 million price tag in response to interest from EPL clubs like Chelsea, netted a hat trick, this time against Inverness Caledonian Thistle in a fifth round Scottish Cup tie on Saturday. The haul brings his season total in all competitions to 26.

Here’s goal No. 1:

Kevin Mohwald Misses The Easiest Shot Ever. But It Becomes A Pirlo-esque Assist.

Kevin Mohwald came as close as he’ll ever be to Andrea Pirlo with this assist for Nurnberg in the German second division. With space and time from eight yards out, Mohwald hits what might’ve been the miss of the season in Germany. Why he’s contorting his body like that and using his foot like a sand wedge we’ll never know, but the effect sends the ball pathetically fluttering sideways. 

Luckily for him, his teammate Abdelhamid Sabiri is there to head it in, and Mohwald doesn’t need to see the club doctor and get evaluated for what the science community refers to as dumb legs.  

Carlos Vela Scores For Sociedad In Match Featuring Two Absolute Golazos

Real Sociedad climbed above Atletico Madrid and into fourth place in La Liga after defeating Espanyol 2-1 on Friday. Carlos Vela’s sixth league goal, his second in two games, and Asier Illarramendi’s wonder strike secured the three points for Sociedad.

Vela opened the scoring in the 26th minute after brilliantly controlling a pass from Inigo Martinez and finishing with composure.
