Spectacular Ronaldo Free Kick Secures His 50th Club Hat Trick And Saves United From Draw With Norwich

MANCHESTER — Cristiano Ronaldo's 50th club career hat-trick and second Premier League treble of the season earned below-par Manchester United a 3-2 victory over Norwich City on Saturday.

With Tottenham Hotspur losing 1-0 at home to Brighton & Hove Albion earlier on Saturday, the door was open for United to close in on the Champions League qualification places with victory over bottom side Norwich and they just about took advantage.

You Might Remember MLS Penalty Run-Ups, But What About Chile’s ‘Long Penalty’ Kicks?

Soccer fans will occasionally look back at the early years of Major League Soccer and chuckle at how Americans tried to make the sport different. While people poke fun at MLS weirdness, the Chile Long Penalty from 1990 is an alteration to the rules that no one seems to remember or talk about. This rule was far more bizarre than the old MLS penalty kicks.

First let’s take a look back at what MLS did in the 90s.

A Player On Ecuador’s Barcelona Scored Such A Sneaky Olimpico You Would Think It’s Spain’s Barcelona

An olimpico goal — one scored directly from a corner kick — is always a sight to behold. Damián “Kitu” Díaz of Ecuador’s Barcelona SC scored one of the most unique olimpicos ever seen on Thursday in the Copa Sudamericana when he caught the Montevideo Wanderers’ goalkeeper out of his goal during the corner kick.

Díaz spotted the goalkeeper standing six yards away from his goal and had the audacity to curl the ball into the goal while the goalkeeper wasn’t looking. Brilliant.

Godly Gareth Bale Performance Puts Wales On Cusp Of First World Cup Since 1958

Gareth Bale's 2021-22 Real Madrid season was summed up by last Sunday's Clásico, when rumors of a surprise start in replace of the injured Karim Benzema led to nothing more than the Welshman missing out on the matchday squad entirely.

Bale's played a total of just 270 minutes in five appearances across all competitions, including only 77 minutes this calendar year, and his only goal of the campaign came way back in August.

But as we all know, Bale's an entirely different animal when representing his national team: Wales. Golf. Madrid. In that order.

¡Despertó El América! 20 Minutos Bastaron Para Que Las Águilas Trituraran Al Toluca

América ganó y es noticia. Las Águilas lograron su segunda victoria tras 11 jornadas en el Clausura 2022, luego de vencer al Toluca por 3-0.

Casi tan increíble como el triunfo en sí – el primero bajo las órdenes del entrenador interino Fernando Ortiz – fue la forma. De hecho, el trece veces campeón apenas necesitó 18 minutos para destrozar a los Diablos Rojos. 

La goleada comenzó con una gota de polémica: el colombiano Roger Martínez recibió un pase de Richard Sánchez en fuera de lugar para vencer a Gustavo Gutiérrez y marcar el primero.

Comoros Left-Back Goes In Goal At AFCON And Reinvents The Keeper Position

It would've been an incredible story by itself: The Comoro Islands, ranked 132nd in the world and with a population under 900,000, making its first-ever Africa Cup of Nations appearance and advancing to the last 16 to play the host and five-time champion Cameroon, but the stage at Paul Biya Stadium in Olembé became a global spectacle Monday when it was confirmed that Comoros' backup left-back, Chaker Alhadhur, would play as a makeshift goalkeeper because of injuries and C

Alexis Vega Es El Nuevo Rey De Los Tiros Libres En La Liga MX

¡Ufff! El gol de Alexis Vega vs Querétaro, ¡ufff!

La estrella de Chivas convirtió un tiro libre de antología ante los Gallos Blancos y poco a poco comienza a construir fama como un maestro del balón detenido. Cierto, no da para compararlo con Juninho Pernambucano o Leo Messi, pero la clase de su pierna derecha ilusiona a los Chivahermanos, quienes empiezan a verlo como un digno sucesor de Benjamín Galindo y Ramón Morales.
