Argentine Primera División

Is this the dumbest penalty ever?

Being an experienced player doesn't mean you are immune to making a rookie-looking mistake. And proof of this sentence is Paolo Goltz, a 37-year-old center back, who recently gave away what people are calling "the dumbest penalty ever" in a game between Independiente and Colón in the Argentinian first division. 

Dumbest penalty ever

The embarrassing moment for Goltz came in the 74th minute when the scoreboard was 1-1 and Colón was getting ready for a routine goal kick.

That's a golazo: River Plate scores one of the jewels of the weekend

A new season in the Argentine First Division began this weekend and River Plate celebrated the occasion with a 2-0 victory over Central Córdoba.

Ignacio Fernández – who returned to the team after a one-year stint with Atletico Mineiro – got on the scoreboard first, while winger Pablo Solari sealed the win with one of those goals you're happy to enjoy from different angles.

And yes, you're going to see it from a few of those angles.

Player In Argentine Primera División Scores Insane 77-Yard Thunderbolt That Only Bounces Once

Take a bow Mateo Coronel!

The 23-year-old midfielder for Atlético Tucumán in Argentina’s top flight scored one of the most impressive long-range goals this writer has ever seen during a 4-0 victory Tuesday night. 

A typical goal from distance is around midfield and catches the goalkeeper out. Other long-range goals are ones like we saw from Union Omaha’s goalkeeper on Saturday that took two bounces before trickling into the goal.

Child Invades Pitch To Console Defeated Goalkeeper

Defensa y Justicia suffered a 1-0 home defeat to Boca Juniors on Sunday evening, a fifth straight match without a win in Argentina’s Primera División. Luis Vázquez dinked the winner past keeper Ezequiel Unsain in the 92nd minute to secure all three points for the visitors.

After the final whistle blew, Unsain fell to his knees, disconsolate over his role in the defeat. 

The goalkeeper was then consoled not by a teammate, coach or even an opponent, but by a young boy from the stands. A child pitch invader consoled Unsain, and the touching moment was caught on camera.
