We'll start in Germany's third division, where Borussia Dortmund II (the U-23s) defeated SV Waldhof on Monday with one of the greatest lobs/90th-minute winners you'll ever see.
The heaven-ascending curler was launched by 20-year-old Dutch attacking midfielder Immanuel Pherai, who's still waiting for his first-team debut but "hasn't given up on that dream."
If I'm Marco Rose, I'm at least giving him a spot on the bench for Saturday's Bundesliga match against Hoffenheim as both a reward and an understanding that, like Disney's 1994 classic Angels in the Outfield, Pherai might currently have some sort of mystical force guiding his 40-yard efforts.
The dip on this is better than Top of the Tater Chive Onion Sour Cream.
