A week of football (25 May - 1 June)

Check out the best football actions of the week from 25 May to 1 June 2018 on mycujoo selected for you !

Beach soccer European Winners Cup in Nazare, Portugal

Great goals

If the week was mainly spent on the beach for mycujoo, we still saw a few amazing things on the grass ! Like this incredible goal from João Bailão for GD Alfarim against UFC Moitense in AF Setubal 1a Divisão on 27 May. The striker escaped on the left wing and from an impossible angle hit a shot straight in the opposite corner. Amazing !

And what to say about this perfect free-kick scored by Marc Fenelus for Tatung in the Chinese Taipei Premier League shock against Taicheng Lions. At the very last minute of the game, the number 10 from Turks-and-Caicos curled a perfect banana shot, leaving no chance to the Lions goalkeeper.

Great saves

As every week there’s been a lot of impressive performances of goalies all over the globe. We particularly liked this save from Daniil Avdyushkin, the last man for FC Speranta Nisporeni in Moldova. His team was confronted to FC Sheriff Tiraspol, leader of the League and big favourite for the title. This extension on his right side might not look as spectacular as other saves but it helped his club to keep a clean sheet and saved the 0-0 draw. Quite an achievement !

But we also liked a lot the sense of sacrifice of the ACS West Deva goalie during the Beach Soccer Euro Winners Cup. The big man did not hesitate to put his body in contention facing an extremely close range bicycle kick from the Bsc Vybor striker, uff…

Oooopps… from the Beach

One fantastic asset of Beach Soccer is that you are absolutely sure to see spectacular goals in each game. From the Beach Soccer Euro Winners Cup, we could have picked up a million goals and a half, but we decided to give you just a little snapshot : like this pure bicycle kick from Falfala Kafr ? This combo from Acd Sotao maybe ? Or this overhead one from the Lady Grembach EE ? Unless you prefer this scissor kick from Braga ? Yeah, same for us: we can’t decide !

But Beach Soccer is actually not different to football : you also see some weird or stunning actions and also funny mistakes. The keeper of Dinamo Batumi probably had the time of his life with this tremendous shot hitting the nets. However, you might not want to try twice the same thing… A day later, a similar attempt was not exactly as successful and ended up rather negatively for his team !

Marseille is well known for the sun, some kind of southern temper, the pastis and maybe sometimes for its nonchalance. We’ve seen a little bit of the latter in Nazare on this carefree pass against Braga. Positive side of it ? It gave us the chance to see a beautiful lob, a relatively rare move in Beach Soccer…

And finally, a bit of creativity: this striker from Alanyabellediye Spor could apparently not decide with which foot he’d hit the ball. Well, not an issue, look at what he did here !

The game to watch

In the world of American amateur soccer, the Steinbrecher Cup is one event you cannot miss. This year’s tournament will see the PDL Champion Charlotte Eagles, the NPSL Champion Elm City Express, the USASA Amateur Cup Champion Lansdowne Bhoys and the 2017 Hank Steinbrecher Cup Champion Michigan Bucks competing for the trophy at Veterans Memorial Stadium in New Britain, CT, on June 1 and 2. "This has the looks of the most talented set of teams we’ve ever had in the Hank Steinbrecher Cup," mentioned the US Adult Soccer Executive Director Duncan Riddle. Bring it on !
