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.
