Boss Man Casually Steps Over Defender Before Unleashing Bicycle Kick In NCAA Tourney

For the second time in the men’s program’s history, the University of New Hampshire Wildcats have reached the NCAA Tournament Round of 16. The feat was accomplished Sunday after a 4-1 victory over North Carolina with every goal being scored in the first half.

New Hampshire defender Bridger Hansen opened the floodgates in the 23rd minute with one of my favorite bicycle kicks of all time. I’ve seen hundreds over the last few years — each one exhilarating in its own right — but I’ve never seen one that begins with the high-stepping of a prone defender. Style points achieved. 

Kick Off Your Weekend Right By Watching One Of The Greatest Bicycle Kicks You’ll Ever See

Unless you’re one of the 15 people in the United States that closely follows the Slovenian PrvaLiga, you probably haven’t had an opportunity to see this amazing bicycle kick by NK Radomlje’s Gedeon Guzina on Friday.

Guzina doesn’t even have a Wikipedia page, but he certainly deserves one after his incredible goal. 

I could tell you about the 27-year-old’s career in Bosnia or about Radomlje’s current standings, but I’ll skip all the fluff and just show you the goal.

Sorry Everyone, But This Unreal Erling Haaland 3-Ball Stack Video Is As Advertised: Not Real

The internet is divided right now over an incredible video of Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland stacking three balls on top of each other and then proceeding to shoot each one into the upper 90 of a goal. Is the Erling Haaland video real though?

I hate to be that guy, but this video probably isn’t real.

Before we debate, let’s watch the video.

Sunday League Bicycle Kick Is So Good That It Spreads Contagious Joy

Not all overhead kicks are created equal. The greatest differentiator has to be that moment of posterization — when the foot meets football at its absolute zenith and the body’s parallelism with the ground seems to foreshadow certain death. 

On one end of the scale there's the footballer who’s simply throwing their leg at the chance and falling over. The result is still a great goal, but the lasting effect isn’t much more powerful than watching a somersault. 

Is It Time To Crown Mohamed Salah As The World’s Best Footballer?

Liverpool and Manchester City stood toe-to-toe at Anfield on Sunday afternoon, exchanging haymakers and glorious bits of skill in an end-to-end classic that ended 2-2 after an exchange of four second-half goals. 

City carved the best opportunities of the first half with Phil Foden tormenting stand-in right back James Milner and Bernardo Silva at his freakish best. This dribble from Silva in the 20th minute deserved a finish from Foden. 

15-Year-Old Goes Global After Producing Unreal Solo Goal In Ghanaian Playoff Final

We have a Puskás Award contender from Ghana after Mizak Asante, age 15, split three defenders, left another on his backside, dribbled past the keeper in the tightest of spaces and roofed a finish over two defenders on the goal-line.

It's a slow burn that gets better and better as it goes.

Every great solo goal needs its Jérôme Boateng.

Mizak Asante
