The Best Goals You Didn’t See This Weekend

Over the weekend, we welcomed La Liga back into our lives. Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez were in rude health scoring superb goals, while their buddy Neymar was in Brazil winning Olympic gold medals with sublime free kicks.

But you know about that. The mission of The Goals Post is to deliver you the golazos that might not have made it onto your radar. Such as this long-range stunner from Portimonense’s Lucas against União Madeira in the Portuguese Segunda Liga…

Not a bad finish for a defender! In the Portuguese top tier, meanwhile, Adrien Silva earned Sporting Lisbon three points against Pacos de Ferreira with this smart finish…

Elsewhere in Iberia, Villarreal earned a point at Granada thanks to Samu Castillejo’s wonderful free kick…

Let us finish in traditional style with some domestic action. Toronto continue to ride high in the MLS Eastern Conference following a 3-1 win over Philadelphia. Jozy Altidore sealed the win with one for the highlight reel…

    Two things: It’s Borja Viguera who scored, not Vigumera. Also, the team is called Sporting Gijon, not the French city Dijon.
