20 year-old Martin Hinteregger from Salzburg scores from 75 yards, 68.58 meters for the folks from across the Atlantic. Not too sure what the Schalke GK was doing so far off his line, but he paid for it. Hinteregger’s fist touch wasn’t too shabby either.
Soccer fans are crazy. They will do almost anything to watch their beloved team in action. Just ask a group of Galatarasy supporters who tried to dig a tunnel into Schalke’s Veltins Arena. The ground was frozen but that didn’t stop the fans that attempted to dig a hole with their bare hands under a perimeter fence. Now that is what I dedication and fandom. Better luck next time Galatarasy fans.
Schalke have signed striker Ciprian Marica, a fortnight after his contract at Stuttgart was cancelled.
Marica, 25, was said to have undergone talks with Blackburn recently, but he has opted to remain in the Bundesliga and signed a two-year deal with Schalke.
“He knows the Bundesliga, speaks many languages and, above all, is a free transfer,” Schalke’s sporting director Horst Heldt told the club’s official website. We are happy the transfer has come off, because several well-known European clubs were also very interested in signing the player.”
Marica’s Stuttgart contract, which had been due to expire next summer, was terminated by mutual consent earlier this month. He had joined the club from Shakhtar Donetsk in 2007.
Despite getting beat down by Schalke in a Champions League match, Inter Milan was able take one positive thing from the thrashing. Milan’s Dejan Stankovic’s goal was an amazing strike from distance, he kicked the ball after a volley was played back to him from midfield basically.
Could this be “the best goal in a loss” of year? It’s definitely not the “best goal of the year”; Wayne Rooney has that honor after his amazing bicycle kick for Manchester United earlier in the year.
