This Week in Golazos

Yesterday, we mentioned Mexico’s impressive 3-2 win over Germany in the U-17 World Cup semifinals, but we didn’t note that El Tri battled back in that game, and then won it on a bicycle kick. In the 90th minute.

Here is that goal, which caused the announcer’s voice to go all quavery:

Sure, they were playing at home, with the full force of 100,000 of their nation’s citizens behind them, but still, the young Mexicans—who went on from this triumph to down Uruguay 2-0 in the final—are impressive.

Almost as impressive, in a very fluky sort of way, is this goal from San Jose Earthquakes reserve goalkeeper David Bingham in a friendly against West Bromwich Albion last night:

The embarrassed keeper is West Brom’s Boaz Myhill, who was born about 50 miles east of San Jose, in Modesto, Calif. The Quakes won the game 2-1.
