    Scott Gomez Scored! Scott Gomez Scored! Scott Gomez Scored! (Video)

    It only took him 368 days, but Scott Gomez has scored!  And we have the proof. While this goal will surely help to relieve some of the pressure on the 32-year-old center, no one will be more relieved than the Montreal Canadiens management, as they should be able to sleep much easier knowing that they […]

    FC Metalist’s Cristian Villagra Scores From 70-Yards Out (Video)

    Are soccer players getting better, or are goalies simply getting much worse?  That is the question I am left to ask after watching yet another kick from over 50-yards out find the back of the net.  This time it occurred during a friendly between Ukranian club FC Metalist Kharkiv and Russia’s Dynamo Moscow, as Metalist’s […]

    Watch A Soccer Player Score Directly From A Corner Kick…Twice! (Video)

    There is no arguing the fact that Roberto Carlos’ “improbable goal” during a Copa del Rey match in 1998 will forever be one off the most unlikely things you will ever see take place on a football pitch.  However, I can’t help but think that Paul Owens‘ performance during a Northern Ireland Premiership game over […]

    After defeating Malaga by a narrow 3-2 score in the first leg of their Round of 16 Copa del Rey match-up, Real Madrid found themselves nervously clinging to a 0-0 draw just over 70 minutes into their second leg yesterday.  But as nervous as the Real Madrid players and fans may have been at that […]

    Macclesfield’s Arnaud Mendy Scored An Incredible Goal (Video)

    Most would probably assume that any highlight from an FA Cup Third Round Proper match between the Bolton Wanderers and Macclesfield Town would likely come from the Premier League side, rather than the side playing in English football’s fourth tier.  However, much to our surprise it was Arnaud Mendy of fourth tier Macclesfield who provided […]

    Everton Keeper Tim Howard Scores From His Own Net (Video)

    With the winds gusting at high speeds inside Goodison Park yesterday, Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard took advantage, as he launched a shot from his own box that would land a few meters in front of Bolton keeper Adam Bogdan, before bouncing over his head and into the back of the net. It was only the fourth […]

    Sunderland Fan Kisses Ji Dong-Won (Video)

    Manchester United fans everywhere would probably love to kiss Sunderland striker Ji Dong-Won after his goal four minutes into injury time on Sunday gave his club the 1-0 victory, and sent Premier League leaders Manchester City home without a single point. The loss leaves Manchester United tied with crosstown rivals Manchester City for top spot […]

    Leafs’ Colton Orr Was Tebowing Following A Shootout Goal (Video)

    With only 11 goals and 20 points throughout his seven-year NHL career, Toronto Maple Leafs enforcer Colton Orr hasn’t had plenty of opportunities to show off his goal celebrations.  He was afforded that opportunity during the Leafs Nation Fan Night at the Air Canada Center last night, and he took full advantage by getting down […]

  • Hong Kong Gives Us The Best Own-Goal You Will Ever Witenss (Video)

    Hong Kong Gives Us The Best Own-Goal You Will Ever Witenss (Video)

    Had Nigerian defender Festus Baise been a member of Hong Kong club team Citizen AA, this could have been one of the greatest soccer goals of the year.  But because he plays for Sun Hei SC, this could end up being one of the best own-goals…ever! Being a defender, Festus Baise probably doesn’t get to […]

  • Patrick Kane Scores An Incredible Shootout Goal (Video)

    Patrick Kane Scores An Incredible Shootout Goal (Video)

    Patrick Kane is accustomed to using his blazing speed and accurate shot in order to score goals, but he didn’t need either to beat Minnesota Wild goaltender Niklas Backstrom during last night’s shootout.  Moving towards the goal at a snail’s pace, all that the Blackhawks’ All-Star forward needed was some wicked stickhandling in order to […]
