Incredible goals from Uruguay and Slovenia

[VIDEO PICK: Golazos] An exhausting run from South America is our entrée followed by a brief piece of magic from Europe on the dessert menu, with both getting rave reviews last weekend.

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 …
