I’ll Never Get Tired Of Watching Lukas Podolski Volleys (Here’s His Latest Strike)

Lukas Podolski has scored hundreds of goals over his 17-year career. He no longer plays at glamorous clubs like Bayern Munich, Arsenal or Inter Milan, but he’s still just 35 and still got a cannon of a left foot.

Podolski joined Antalyaspor in Turkey from Vissel Kobe in January and hasn’t exactly been a revelation. But on Saturday the man with 49 goals for Germany — third-most all time — struck again.

What The Hell Is The Point Of VAR When It Ignores This Shit

Harry Maguire is one lucky boy. And the VAR has some explaining to do.

Manchester United’s center back made a clear and obvious foul on Chelsea’s César Azpilicueta in the first half of their match on Saturday at Old Trafford. The referee missed it, so the video assistant referee should have chimed in to award a penalty to Chelsea.

Instead, no VAR intervened when the ball was played out of bounds moments later. No penalty was awarded. 

Let This Insane Solo Youth Goal Be A Lesson To All Americans

Insane Time-Wasting In Portugal’s Top Tier Is Soundtracked By R.E.M.’s ‘Everybody Hurts’

After losing 2-0 to Santa Clara in their Primeira Liga opener, the pressure was on Marítimo to secure a result against Tondela on Saturday. 

Things started off well enough with Rodrigo Pinho finishing from close range in the 34th minute to open the scoring for Marítimo, but things turned sour when defender Fábio China was handed a straight red for the denial of a goal-scoring opportunity in the 41st minute.

Jacob Morales Of Pumas Tabasco Pulls Out The Sauce With Scorpion Kick

Say what you will about whether Liga de Expansión MX is a good or bad idea of Mexican soccer, letting the kids play has the propensity to produce the spectacular. For every mistake from a youngster, you’ll see something like this Jacob Morales scorpion kick.

Pumas Tabasco, a subsidiary of Pumas UNAM, played to a 2-2 draw with UDG at Jalisco Stadium on Sunday. The highlight of the match — indeed perhaps the best highlight of the day — was this Jacob Morales scorpion kick from the 21-year-old in the 22nd minute.

Fulham Returns To Prem Thanks To This Flabbergasting 40-Yard Free Kick

Joe Bryan what have you done? 

Fulham will return to the Premier League for the 2020-21 season after beating Brentford 2-1 in extra time in the “world’s richest game” on Tuesday at Wembley Stadium. The EFL Championship playoff final was scoreless through 105 minutes until a stunning free kick from about 40 yards out was scored by Joe Bryan, who added a second in the dying minutes. 

Why The Best Free Kick Of João Pedro’s Life Didn’t Count

In some ways, you have to feel bad for João Pedro. In others, you can’t help but laugh at the Cagliari striker for not knowing better. After the João Pedro free kick fiasco against Lazio on Thursday, either reaction is appropriate.

Early in Cagliari’s visit to Lazio, the referee blew his whistle for a foul about 30 yards from Lazio’s net. João Pedro stepped up and smashed the free kick straight into the back of the net. 

It was a flabbergasting shot, rifled straight into the upper 90.

And it didn’t count.

Watch: Zapata Commits War Crime On De Ligt’s Man Parts

Duván Zapata scored the first goal for Atalanta in a 2-2 draw with league-leading Juventus on Saturday. Moments later he added injury to insult in quite possibly the worst way imaginable with the Zapata stomp on Matthijs de Ligt.

Zapata, a 29-year-old Colombian striker, gave Atalanta the lead when he brushed past Rodrigo Betancur to reach a pass from Papu Gómez, firing a low shot past Wojciech Szczesny in goal.
