image

Take a bow, Dillon Serna.

The Colorado Rapids youngster is one of the hottest up-and-coming talents in Major League Soccer, and he showed us why on Sunday.

With his side tied 1-1 at DC United, Serna scored this stunning goal from 35 yards out for a 2-1 lead, then celebrated with a textbook back flip to boot:

That’ll do, Dillon. That’ll do.

Actually no it didn’t because the Rapids still lost, but don’t let that little fact ruin the moment. What a hit!

England’s Beth Mead hits screamer in Under-20 Women’s World Cup

A month ago, we were watching what we thought were the final phases of the “World Cup of Goals.”

Instead, it looks like it’s far from over. The ladies at the Under-20 Women’s World Cup have picked up right where the men in Brazil left off - scoring worldies left and right.

First, France’s Claire Lavogez defied physics with a hit that rainbowed over the keeper to finish off a beautiful team move. And now, England’s Beth Mead goes on and does this:

Golazo! Futsal player scores incredible back-heel goal from long distance

"With them moves like Zlatan, he’s got the moves like Zlatan…"

Brazilian futsal player Marcio channeled his inner Zlatan Ibrahimovic and scored an outrageous golazo against Jaraguá on Monday night.

To his fantastic goal, Marcio, who henceforth shall also be known as Zlatinho, told SporTV: “I was fortunate to catch the ball well, scoring a great goal. It is certainly one of the best goals of my career.”

Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough for his side, Marechal Rondon. Jaraguá won, 2-1.

Hulk scores cracking goal in season opener

image

Uh oh. Hulk is back smashing things again.

Probably still angry over Brazil’s embarrassing end to their World Cup campaign last month, the Zenit attacker took all his frustration out on poor Arsenal Tula on Matchday 1 of the new Russian Premier League campaign.

Watch:

Lord have mercy! Goalkeeper Aleksandr Filimonov might actually be glad he didn’t get in the way of that one. He easily could’ve lost a hand or worse.

Zenit won their season opener on the road, 4-0.

Miralem Pjanic scores ridiculous goals like you or I might eat cereal for breakfast. Dude does it all. The. Time.

The Roma midfielder’s latest trick may be the most audacious of them all, scoring from well inside his own half during Saturday’s International Champions Cup tilt vs Manchester United. See it here:

Good Lord!

As most of us already knew, and as the Denver Broncos found out yesterday, Pjanic is money from this type of range:

Bayern Munich’s Lewandowski scores cheeky goal in preseason test

image

Something tells us that Robert Lewandowski will bring Bayern Munich fans lots of joy this season.

Earlier this week, the former Dortmund man found the net in his very first game as a Bayern player. Then, on Saturday against Borussia Moenchengladbach, he goes and does this:

Come on!

That little moment of magic gave Bayern a 1-0 lead over Gladbach in the preseason Telekom Cup. The defending Bundesliga champions would later go on to win in a penalty shootout and advance to the final.
