[VIDEO PICK: Golazos]Fantastic Friday sees Marta’s sick footwork in Sweden, an unreal backheel in Azerbaijan, an absolutely amazing run in England and a poignant moment between opposing fans in Italy proving sportsmanship may be dying, but it isn't dead.

Great clips, these first two are under 25 seconds; the last two are a minute.

This remarkable backheel from Shahriyar Aliyev for Baku might be the best we’ve seen all season.



A Celtic fan and a Juve fan exchanging scarves during their Champions League game, with the visiting fan donning the Juventus scarf as his team heads out.



Reading is 19th in the EPL, but this absolutely incredible run by its 18-year-old striker Dominic Samuelon the U-21 squad provides hope.



Finally, if you’re thinking Brazil’s five-time FIFA Women’s World Player of the Year is at 27 slowing down, see her samba past the defense during a club friendly in Sweden last Thursday. The clip's title suggests Marta is disguised as Ronaldinho, or vice versa ...

    Headline reads, "Marta dances her way to the top of Friday's best." Never liked that expression "dances." In reality it is a simplistic derogatory term which has nothing to do with soccer. Same can be said for "fresh legs"; neither term measures a player's ability to execute.

    It wasn't the mediocre writing or mundane insights to the game that, in the end, caused me to drop my subscription to Soccer America. It was the combination of those things, plus the boneheaded, sloppy and easily avoided spelling and typographical errors that routinely found their way into print, like Marta's "sick footwork" in the first sentence of this story. Soccer America REALLY needs to hire someone who can and does read, preferably an English major, to proof its copy before it gets published.

    Scarf exchange is the best, thanks!

    Thank you Kyr-Roger for your perfect insight. These goofs have gone on too long. It is obvious Soccer America doesnt believe in Proof reading their content.

    Do some of you imply that ‘sick footwork’ is a typo, and that ‘sick’ was supposed to be ‘slick’? The term ‘sick’ is used by many youth players synonymously as ‘really good’ or ‘awesome’. For example, the boys I work with all say ‘sick’, as in ‘sick goal’, to mean ‘great goal’. Maybe it’s a northeast term. I don’t have any connection to SoccerAmerica other than a reader, but, aren’t your criticisms a little over the top? If you don’t like your free info, then simply unsubscribe and find your soccer fix elsewhere. I happen to like the compilations and articles; and I think so do many others. I don’t have the time to surf for these things; glad it just comes to my mailbox. The scarf exchange was neat. I’m surprised they let rival fans get that close. They hosts must not have expected any trouble.

    Oh, Ronnie J, if only it were so. But poor grammatical construction and lazy proofreading (or less) have long been the hallmark of SoccerAmerica. ... And yes, it likely is just a regionally popular term, which would be inappropriate to use without explication in a wider publication.
