nakamura

We’re pretty sure 37-year-old Shunsuke Nakamura will never stop scoring gorgeous free kicks. This one came in the 94th minute to help Yokohama F. Marinos salvage a 2–2 draw with Gamba Osaka. [Source: Youtube]

vladislav

Vladyslav Kalytvyntsev opened the Ukrainian Premier League season with a swerving effort as Chornomorets finished level with Olimpik Donetsk. [Source: Gfycat]

steaua

Whack! Steaua Bucharest’s Alexandru Chipciu couldn’t have struck his vicious effort any sweeter. [Source: Streamable]

amarikwa

Sure, the LA Galaxy ended up routing the San Jose Earthquakes 5–2, but the first half belonged to Quakes forward Quincy Amarikwa and his lovely skill on the ball. [Source: Gfycat]

boca

Jonathan Calleri opted for the unconventional finish as Boca Juniors edged Quilmes 2–1. For the record, we fully support unconventional finishes and gratuitous rabonas. [Source: Youtube]

leon

León’s Aldo Rocha sized up a half-clearance and ripped a volley into the top corner against Minnesota United. [Source: Gfycat]

From the looks of it, France U-19 goalkeeper Bingourou Kamara REALLY wants to have a turn at center forward. [Source: Youtube]
