A wind aided own goal in the German lower division game between Wimsheim vs TSV Grunbach. I love that the players celebrate like someone just hit a 90th minute bicycle kick.

Kind of reminds me of playing at Pennypack Park, no?

You heard about it on PhillySoccerPage first (or pretty close to first, right?), and now we have video of Eddie Johnson’s first goal for Greek club Aris. The service from Freddy Adu is, well, breathtaking. It just goes to show you that if he was always allowed to take five dribbles up the pitch with zero pressure while the fastest man on the field makes a run behind the defense, Adu would already be living up to the hype.

Historically (and admittedly, it’s a short history), Wonderland has brought you spectacular footy highlights, moments meant to jolt your love of the game back into top gear before the weekend matches. Today’s Wonderland takes place pre-match.

Before every game, the supporters of Liverpool Football Club sing a rendition of the club’s theme song, an old Gerry and the Pacemakers number called, “You’ll Never Walk Alone”. And never do they sing louder than before the local derby against Everton.

Oregon State has a pretty good State of the Program video… because Danny Mwanga is a pretty good player. The first minute features two Mwanga highlights; check out his speed in the first one and the technique on display in the second.

A 2009 M.A.C. Hermann Trophy semifinalist, Mwanga led the Pac-10 in multiple offensive categories including: goals scored (14), points per game (1.67), goals per game (0.78) and game-winning goals (5). He finished second in points (30). His mark in goals per game ranked him third in the NCAA.

Here’s Rocky Baptiste missing from about 1 yard away on an empty net.  Luckily his (non league) Harrow Borough side was up 5-3 when he decided that he really didn’t need to pad his individual stats on that day.  I think my favorite part is his teammate who is celebrating the goal until realizes that it didn’t actually go in.  The 2nd part of the video is taken from a game earlier in the season, proving that Baptiste is actually a quite capable striker, a little further from the goal.
