Our epic from Uruguay may even leave our readers tired, and grateful that our subtle Slovenian sorcery lasts just 18 seconds.

Without losing the ball, 22-year-old Gabriel Leyes of River Plate Montevideo hits the deck, jumps up, gets his bearings, and then somehow eludes what seems to be Cerro’s entire team before beating a defender on the line between the wickets, still finding the energy for a celebratory belly flop.

River Plate won 2-1, and it looks like he actually only beat seven defenders, plus the keeper...



A year wiser, at 23, Mura 05’s Arpad Vas sees no need for all that huffing and puffing to grab a golazo in this 2-1 loss to Olimpija.

Vas takes it off his hip, a flawless flick with the outside, and the volley. No muss, no fuss, thanks for coming …
