Watch A 20-Year-Old Diego Maradona Provide A Stunning Assist

It had been no secret within Argentina that Diego Maradona was a precocious talent from an early age. Appearing against Hungary as a 16-year-old, Maradona became the country’s youngest international ever. 

When the 1978 World Cup came to Argentina the call to include him in the squad, now aged just 17, was resounding. But Argentine manager Cesar Luis Menotti abstained, believing that the pressures of a World Cup on home soil would be too much for the adolescent.

Darlington Nagbe Drops An Assist So Absurd That People Are Questioning Its Intent

The Portland Timbers made it three wins from three matches to begin their 2017 MLS season, and Darlington Nagbe capped a superb week with an assist so good that your first instinct is to doubt its intention.

Nagbe was recalled to the USMNT last week for their upcoming World Cup qualifiers, and the midfielder’s creativity was on full display in Portland’s 4-2 victory over Houston on Saturday.

Nagbe was frequently overlooked by Jurgen Klinsmann, but his ridiculous assist for David Guzman’s goal should tell you everything you need to know about his quality. 

Cristiano Ronaldo Has Now Registered More Assists Than Any Player In The History Of The Champions League

Cristiano Ronaldo didn’t make the headlines following Real Madrid’s 3-1 victory against Napoli Wednesday, those all belonged to Casemiro after his stunning, vital volley, but it was a vintage performance from Real’s No. 7. Whether cropping up on the left or right side of attack, Ronaldo was a constant threat to Napoli’s fullbacks, and his assist to Toni Kroos for Real’s second was sensational.

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.  

This Ajax Team Goal From The 90s Is The Blueprint For Today’s Barcelona

This 1994-95 Ajax team under the management of Louis van Gaal, who would go on to manage Barcelona, served as the blueprint of the short passing, possession-based style that was the philosophy of Johan Cruyff.

To employ such a philosophy, you need talented players. This Ajax side had that in abundance as they would go through the entire Dutch league season without losing a match and defeat AC Milan in the European Cup final.
