Trending: NYCFC’s 5 Shot Challenge & Zombies(!)

It’s time to crank open that digital vault and find out what’s been shared far and wide online this week.

MLS Midfield Goals

One of our boys was responsible for one of the most widely-shared videos this week as David Villa netted from 53.5 yards against Philadelphia, prompting all manner of debates on the best long-range hits.

MLS celebrated David’s feat with this compilation of similar strikes from the league in years gone by…

While You’re Here…

This might be a good time to tell you that the MLS Goal of the Week vote is wayyyyyy closer than it might be.

You know what to do.

Five Shot Challenge

Sticking with the boys in blue, Jack Harrison and Tommy McNamara took part in Copa90’s Five Shot Challenge the other week and this video was posted up on KICK’s Facebook page. 


Our last bit of navel-gazing this week, promise! Have you seen the jerseys we'll be wearing for Earth Day against Orlando City? All the information is in the link below...

The Greatest Love

Ex-Man City defender Kolo Toure has been described as “the gift that keeps on giving” after he inadvertently revealed his love of Whitney Houston in a press conference.


Another big hit with the “ft” community (football Twitter don’t you know), was footage of ex-England international Tony Adams taking his first training session after taking over at Granada in Spain.

Spawning endless memes and parodies, these are some serious moves from Patrick Vieira’s former Arsenal teammate.

AMAZING: Tony Adams' state-of-the-art training routine for Granada.

Zombie Apocalypse

Only in Japan… Kashima Antlers are preparing to a host a “zombie escape” experience at Kashima Stadium.

I could spend the next few sentences trying to describe this to you, or you could just watch this video and wish against wish that we could do this at Yankee Stadium.

And Finally…

We’ll leave you with the SECOND best goal scored around the world this week. Ivan Markovic of Vozdovac netted this absolute screamer at the weekend…
