Amazing Goals

Goalkeeper goes coast-to-coast and possibly breaks the record for longest goal ever scored

Cobresal goalkeeper Leandro Requena is over the moon not only because he scored a rare coast-to-coast goal against Chilean giants Colo Colo in a 3-1 win last Saturday, but also because his feat might have broken the record for the longest goal ever scored in professional soccer. 

The funny thing is he wasn't even trying. 

Meet Evan FerGOATson, the 18-year-old phenom who's here to save Ireland

Goalscoring has been an awfully bleak exercise for the Republic of Ireland since all-time leading scorer Robbie Keane announced his international retirement in 2016. The team only scored seven goals in nine matches during a failed qualifying cycle for Euro 2020, and things didn't get much better on the road to Qatar where Ireland only scored 11 in eight games (the majority coming against Luxembourg and Azerbaijan).

Santi Giménez abre goleada de Feyenoord y se acerca a récord de Luis García y Chicharito Hernández

La historia de Santiago Giménez en el Feyenoord continúa agregando capítulos felices a sus páginas. El delantero mexicano esta vez volvió a marcar y guió una aplastante victoria 7-1 de su equipo sobre el Shakhtar Donestk, la cual sirvió para avanzar a los cuartos de final de la Europa League.

Marcus Rashford makes a 25-yard screamer look as simple as a tap-in

The year of Marcus Rashford continued Thursday as the Manchester United forward scored the lone goal against Real Betis at Estadio Benito Villamarín, giving the Red Devils a 5-1 aggregate victory and easy passage to the Europa League quarterfinals.

Before the World Cup, Rashford had a total of eight goals in 19 appearances across all competitions. Since the tournament in Qatar, the 25-year-old has found the back of the net 18 times in 24 games. The total of 26 from 43 is already a career best and the Red Devils are still competing on three fronts.

Death, taxes and Erling Haaland breaking goalscoring records

As Erling Haaland watched the fourth official slowly put up his board and tell the world the Nowegian’s day was done, Haaland left his short conversation with Kevin De Bruyne to make way for Julián Álvarez. It was a completely fair decision by Pep Guardiola. Álvarez is a fantastic striker, and a World Cup winner lest we forget, but his one crime is not being Erling Haaland.

Fallen player comes up with nasty, clever bicycle kick goal while lying on the ground

Every day there's a goal that illuminates our lives. And on Sunday, that light came from Brazil thanks to Léo Reis, who got himself out of a tough spot by scoring a nasty, wonderful bicycle kick while lying on the ground.

1-0 down against Céara in the first leg of the Cearense Championship semifinals, Reis was trying to find an equalizer for his club Iguatu when reaching for an aerial cross, but he ended up on the grass with his back to goal. 

¡Maldito VAR! Le anulan un golazo a Orbelín Pineda y el AEK pierde el liderato en Grecia

El AEK Atenas de Orbelín Pineda se jugaba un partido crucial de la liga griega, al recibir este domingo al Olympiacos. Los blanquiamarillos entraban al campo del Opap Arena con la idea de mantenerse como líderes del torneo, defendiendo el punto de ventaja que tenían sobre el Panathinaikos.

Sin embargo, el equipo del mexicano no terminó por aparecer. La Union terminó siendo derrotada por los rojiblancos, perdiendo y cediendo el liderato de la Superliga de Grecia.

Cañonazo de Edson Álvarez prende la Eredivisie y le mete miedo al Feyenoord de Santi Giménez

Edson Álvarez le puso TNT a sus botines y este domingo colaboró con un lindo cañonazo en la victoria 4-2 del Ajax sobre el Heerenveen.

La victoria extendió el buen momento del cuadro de Ámsterdam – fue su séptimo triunfo consecutivo – y encendió la lucha por el título en la Eredevisie, igualando provisoriamente en la tabla a su más enconado rival, el Feyenoord de Santi Giménez.
