This week Carli Lloyd wowed with her field goal-kicking chops while Carlos Vela chopped down each and every San Jose defender in his way. Find those videos and more below, submitted by our FIFA Fan Movement.
Vela scorches San Jose
From Joseph Adakurugu (Chile)
Los Angeles FC’s Carlos Vela is a man on a mission in Major League Soccer. This season he’s scored a staggering 26 goals and chipped in 15 assists, already surpassing the combined league record set by Sebastian Giovinco four years ago. The Mexican forward put on a masterclass on Wednesday with this goal against San Jose Earthquakes, shared by vancouver100football.
From Hezekiah Chigorimbo (South Africa)
Not only is no current team in world football hotter than Corinthians, no team has ever been. Tichchigorimbo took notice of the team’s 28th consecutive victory this week, the longest streak ever in men’s or women’s football. Since their last defeat in March, they’ve scored 96 goals while conceding just eight.
Lyon’s kingdom grows
From María Laura Arce (USA)
It isn’t often these days that women’s club football juggernauts Lyon hoist a trophy for the first time. But that’s exactly what the six-time UEFA Women’s Champions League winners did in the International Champions Cup, defeating North Carolina Courage 1-0 in the pre-season tournament’s finale. Maluarce brings us the celebration that followed.
Lloyd from long range
From Jewel Ramos (USA)
Anyone who remembers Carli Lloyd’s iconic long-distance goal during the final of the FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015™ won’t be too surprised by what happened when she visited the Philadelphia Eagles of the USA’s National Football League. Watch Lloyd nail this 55-yard field goal, a distance that even the NFL pros struggle with. Thanks to bsrocks8 for sharing.
From Krystof Gogela (Czech Republic)
Union Berlin may have suffered defeat in their Bundesliga opener against RB Leipzig, but the result nearly felt secondary to the celebration in the stands. It was the club’s first top-flight game in its 53-year history. As mynameistofik pointed out, this prompted fans to bring pictures of over 450 late supporters with them into the stands, sharing the experience across a half-century.
