Corinthians - Cobresal / Copa Libertadores / 21 April 2016:
After attacking midfielder Marlone joined Brazilian heavyweights Corinthian in January, their fans were made to wait for the first goal from their new recruit. His maiden strike came in a Copa Libertadores clash against Chilean outfit Cobresal, and was followed half-an-hour later by his second – an effort that will be long-remembered by Timao fans. Edilson burst down the Corinthians right and delivered a cross slightly behind the No8. Marlone chested the ball int the air and, quick as a flash despite being closed down by Rodrigo Urena, scissor-kicked the ball in mid-air toward goal, seeing it fly past Sebastian Cuerdo.
Venezuela - Colombia / Women's U-17 Sudamericano Championship / 14 March 2016:
Alongside her compatriot Deyna Castellanos, Daniuska Rodríguez was one of the undoubted stars of the Women’s U-17 Sudamericano Championship, scoring six goals as hosts Venezuela won the title. One of the most memorable moments was Rodriguez’s individual effort against Colombia in the final group stage. The midfielder worked her way into the Colombian penalty area, twisted and turned her way past the challenges of Sofia Montoya and Manuela Vanegas with some intricate footwork, before blasting the ball into the roof of the net.
Penang - Pahang / Malaysia Super League / 16 February 2016:
Nobody in the Bandaraya Pulau Pinang Stadium could have imagined the trajectory of the ball as Mohd Faiz Subri stepped up to take a free-kick some distance away from goal, far over to the left-hand side of the pitch. The diminutive No13, a prolific goalscorer in the Malaysian Super League, hammered his effort goalwards, struck in a ‘knuckleball’ manner, producing a swerve so wicked that goalkeeper Mohd Nasril Nourdin stood no chance.
