You have to see this half-field volley from the Singapore league

Wayne Rooney, you’ve got some competition.

It comes in the form of a player in the S.League, Fabian Kwok. The goalkeeper on the opposing team clears the ball right to the Geylang International FC midfielder. We can only imagine what his coach thought of what happened next.

Fabian, what are you doing? You can’t score from there. That’s silly. Stop that. Just settle it and find a teammate.

You’re shooting it? What are you doing?! YOU WON’T SCOR…

…OH MY GOD IT WENT IN.

Feel free to watch this a few times to really let it sink in. We did.

Fourth division player scores Diego Maradona-esque solo goal

You probably haven’t heard of Quique Cubas, but you don’t need to know him to appreciate this amazing goal.

Cubas, a player for regional side Arosa S.C., made five opponents (including the goalkeeper) look absolutely silly en route to one of the best solo efforts since Diego Maradona’s spectacular goal versus England in the 1986 World Cup.

Golazos! Jordan Pro League is bringing the heat lately

It doesn’t matter whether you’re playing Champions League or Jordan’s Pro League. If you score on an over-the-back heel flick from a good twenty yards out, you’re getting on the Blog! On Saturday, Al-Wihdat forward Motaz Salhani did just that, turning in one of the most outrageous and oddest (or is it luckiest?) goals you’ll ever see against Al-Ramtha.

But wait: there’s more from the Kingdom! That’s right, the JPL has graciously given us a two-for-one ‘Golazo Special’ over the past seven days.

Last Sunday, Al Ramtha were on the right side of a ridiculous goal when right-back Suleiman Al-Salman scored an absolute cracker from his own side of the field against Al Arabi:

Forget the Premier League! We all might need to start watching the Jordan Pro League regularly.

Cologne U-9 player performs double pirouette en route to wonder goal

We have a bit of a rule here at FOX Soccer that it’s poor form to wear a shirt bearing the name of a player younger than you. This serves a variety of trivial purposes, but the main reason is two-fold:  It helps deter us from reminding us of our age and how physically inept we really are.

For instance, Neymar is still just 21 years old and we’ll never even come close to being this awesome. Now, enter this young starlet from FC Cologne in Germany, playing in a match against Bayer Leverkusen’s U-9 squad.

In just one turn of play, Cologne’s No. 11 manages to dispossess his opponent, make not one, but two beautiful pirouettes to dodge tackles, and then blast a shot between two defenders to beat the keeper at the far post.

Are you kidding me?

We’re not sure what this little maestro’s name is, but you can take it to the bank we won’t be wearing a shirt with his name on it down the road.

Despite how much we might want to.
