Every now and then, a long distance goal from either the Development Academy or ECNL catches our attention.

This week’s offering comes off the foot of Capital Area Railhawk Dominic Jensen. Talk about a casual blast from long range.

The 2015 graduate is committed to North Carolina for next fall.

U.S. youth international Emerson Hyndman has been in Fulham’s youth system forever — at least it seems like it — and continues to make a name for himself with their U18 squad. Hyndman scored the team’s second goal in a 3-2 win against Chelsea during Monday’s FA Youth Cup final first leg. Next week the two sides will battle it out in the final leg at Stamford Bridge.

This isn’t the first time he’s graced the 91st Minute either thanks to a goal in the FA Youth Cup. Wonder when he’ll finally make his first team debut?

While the Champions League failed to provide much in terms of goals this week, the Europa League is doing its part to make up for it.

Sevilla’s Stephane M’bia produced the pick of the lot so far, at first whiffing on a tap-in to produce a scintillating set of skill. Never mind that he might have been offside not once, but twice from the opening free kick.

We’d still prefer watching the Champions League, of course.

If you follow this site, you’ve likely heard of Emerson Hyndman, a U.S. youth player currently on the books at Fulham. The grandson of former FC Dallas coach Schellas, Hyndman scored a nice free kick this week as Fulham topped QPR 4-1 in the FA Youth Cup.

The young midfielder very well could be the best American teenager abroad at the moment. A veteran of U.S. U17 and U20 squads, he’s a technically excellent player who showcases his skills with the first goal above.

Maryland and UNC, two of the best teams in the ACC, lined up in men’s soccer on Friday night. And while each has reason to be happy about a 2-2 draw, the highlight of the night was this epic 50+ yard run from Carolina midfielder Omar Holness.

Terps coach Sasho Cirovski will no doubt some words with his defenders after this one.

Don’t be fooled by the way this video starts out: with a grown man trying to hold off a defender then falling down because of gravity and old age. This guy more than makes up for that with a nifty backheel flip that left everyone on the opposing side standing still – they turned stiffer than Burberry mannequins in the presence of Beckham’s son Romeo.

Well played, Brazilian Futsal guy. If you can manage to stay on your feet you just might have a future in this game.

After watching this video, I halfway expected Ashton Kutcher to run out on the field and tell the defense: you just got punked!

What Jhasmani Campos does to these poor defenders is just wrong. Particularly when he turns back up-field and leaves one guy assuming the Tim Tebow position. But not even prayer could save him on this one.
