Colorado’s Dillon Serna scores cracking volley vs DC United

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!

Bielefeld’s Fabian Klos hits wonder volley in German Cup

Sometimes, the greatest goals of the year come from the unlikeliest of sources, such as Sunday’s German Cup first-round match between Arminia Bielefeld (third division) and FC Sandhausen (2. Bundesliga).

With the underdogs ahead in the second half, Fabian Klos ripped a marvelous volley straight off a corner kick to give Bielefeld a 2-0 lead and a place in the next round. For Sandhausen, there was just no coming back from a golazo of these epic proportions.

Want to see it a few more times? Your wish is our command:

WATCH: Mainz player scores from 60 yards in final seconds to force PK shootout

There’s a lot of excitement in the air as the Premier League kicks off anew on Saturday, but we’ve probably already seen the most exciting match of the weekend, and it was in the First Round of the German Cup.

Mainz 05 and third-division club Chemnitzer FC offered fans an incredible football spectacle featuring ten goals and a penalty shootout. The highlight came on the very last play in extra time, when Mainz’s Johannes Geis scored from 60 yards to force an unlikely penalty shootout.

Just two minutes earlier, Chemnitz though they had scored the winner over the Bundesliga side, but Geis took advantage of a terrible goal kick by Philipp Pentke to extend the nerve-wracking affair. Pentke, however, would redeem himself in the shootout and seal the upset for Chemnitz.

Watch the full highlights here:

Demba Ba scores possibly the worst goal ever

Former Premier League striker Demba Ba now plies his trade at Besiktas, and on Wednesday he scored his first goal for the Turkish champions in a 3-1 win over Feyenoord. Of course, he did so in typical Demba Ba fashion, with the grace of a gazelle.

Watch:Off his toe, off his behind, and in. Just like he drew it up.

We shouldn’t be too hard on Ba, though. He scored twice more in the second half for his hat trick, sealing Besiktas a place in the Champions League Play-off round.

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:
