Sure, it looked like a bad touch at first, but Ralekoti Mokhahlane pulled off an incredible volley in Lesotho’s World Cup qualifying defeat to Algeria. [Source: Streamable]

drogba

Didier Drogba scored his first goal for the Montreal Impact with a smart finish against the Chicago Fire. He’d go on to score two more in a 4–3 win. [Source: Streamable]

juju

There’s nothing against dark arts in FIFA’s Laws of the Game, right? Israel’s Tal Ben Haim cast a spell on Gareth Bale’s free kick, which is why he missed it, obviously. [Source: Imgur]

fishlock

Jessica Fishlock volleyed home a stunner in the Seattle Reign’s 2–1 victory over the Washington Spirit. [Source: Gfycat]

Look closely — there probably wasn’t a better save all weekend than Andrew Hogg’s point-blank stop against Azerbaijan. Malta would end up drawing 2–2. [Source: Gfycat]

santos

Santos forward Geuvânio smashed a shot into the top corner to give his side a 3–1 lead over Chapecoense. [Source: Streamable]

David Silva makes difficult things look really easy, like this clipped assist to Jordi Alba during Spain’s win over Slovakia. [Source: Streamable]
