Chicharito Is Enduring The Longest Goal Drought Of His Professional Career

It was always going to be difficult to match the success of his debut season with Bayer Leverkusen, but Saturday marked a new low in the professional career of Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez. The Mexican striker hadn’t scored a goal since October 1st, and he was looking for his first goal in seven Bundesliga matches.

With the scores level in the 88th minute of Leverkusen’s match with Freiburg, Chicharito stepped up to take the penalty that would end his goal scoring drought and reverse the fortunes of a Leverkusen club that had lost two consecutive Bundesliga matches.

You’ve Seen Awful Misses Before But You’ve Never, Ever Seen One Like This

Hellas Verona Training Session Features The Greatest Rabona Goal Ever Scored

The rabona method of kicking the ball hardly ever results in anything other than a change of possession. While many ridiculously talented players have successfully performed a rabona in competition, including Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar and Arjen Robben, it’s extremely rare that the method leads to anything apart from a largely ineffective attempt at crossing the ball.

Lamela Is Pretty Good At Soccer

LAMELA! OH THAT IS BRILLIANT!! And brilliant it was. A gentle yet powerful left footed curler added to the beating as Tottenham demolished Inter Milan. Look for Lamela to assist Harry Kane in this season for Tottenham as they attempt to snatch the title that they couldn't quite grab last year. A 6-1 beating of Inter Milan was another step for Tottenham as they look to get things started the right way on August 13th against Everton at Goodison Park. This second goal for Tottenham was a sumptuous finish courtesy of Erik Lamela. Fantastic finish and placement.

Bonaventura Snipes A Free Kick From Distance

A pretty one sided affair Wednesday evening in the state of Minnesota at the US Bank Stadium as Chelsea defeated AC Milan 3-1 to end their US Tour. However, that did not stop Giacomo Bonaventura from wowing a few Americans with his brilliance from distance. A 38th minute free kick sent the US Bank stadium rocking after he bent a ball up and over the wall to even the game at 1-1. Some may say he is even more accurate than Blair Walsh..... too soon? Nevertheless, it is always exciting seeing screaming, spinning free kicks find the back of the net. Cheers mate, great goal. Ring the bell!
