Darwin Machís Spurs Evolution Forward With Thrilling Solo Goal

Evolution does not stand still, unlike these Almeria defenders. Evolution moves inexorably forward, like Granada’s Darwin Machís. In a Spanish Segunda División match on Friday, Machís showed the next step forward in evolution with a thrilling solo goal.

Machís fooled one defender, took a ride on the HMS Beagle for about 20 yards and curled in a beautiful finish to double Granada’s lead early in the second half against Almeria, the goal nestling into the back of the net by the width of a finch beak.

Half-Volley From Center Circle Is Just Too Violent

Sean McConville of Accrington Stanley is the main culprit here. If this were a game of Clue, I’d suggest it was Sean McConville, all the way from the conservatory, with a lead pipe.

What we have here is a classic case of too much violence in the EFL Checkatrade Trophy. The Red Imps of Lincoln City were on the receiving end of this hit from McConville, but they still managed to comeback on two occasions and prevail 3-2.
