Four great goals from three games you probably missed

[VIDEO PICK: Golazos] One-hundred seconds from: the Turkish Super Lig, the U-20 Women's World Cup, and the English Championship.

In honor of World Cup Qualifying, all three of these players have, at least tenuous, national team ties. In honor of Friday, the longest clip is 37 seconds. Enjoy.

Former Turkish U-21 Olcan Adin, of Trabzonspor, unleashes your standard issue, devastating free kick, top corner, from distance -- the only goal in last week’s home win over Kasimpasa. He made his first, and only, senior team appearance in March, at 27.



During August, at the U-20 Women’s World Cup in Japan, after some dull midfield moments, Olivia Jiminez of Mexico, in black, walks in from her own half and just crushes one from forty yards out to seal a, 2-0, win over Switzerland in group play.



Finally, a worthy finish, as Les Bleus U-21 International, Anthony Knockaert, playing for Leicester, scored two fantastic goals in a win over Huddersfield last week. Only 20, the French winger’s second, a flick into net from behind his head, while facing goal, is truly remarkable.
