Just after the half the Nigerian Striker puts the Super Eagles on top of Iceland with a classy half volley. The Leicester City man popped the cross up on his right, let it settle in the mid-air and struck through with power to the top half of the near post.

I WOULD LITERALLY NEVER USE HYPERBOLIC COPY, but on rare occasions I do.

In case you missed it, The Guardian has blessed us with 736 blurbs about every rostered player in this 2018 Russian edition of the World Cup. Admittedly, i’m writing this at work, and I haven’t had a chance to peruse every profile, but below are a couple that caught my eye, and match the aesthetic we’ve worked so hard to create here at The HV.

That Costa Rican – Russian connection that will surely turn into a light chuckle by game-day commentary leads across the world.

Mandzukic put on blast. I can’t say i’m entirely sure how the awarding process works, but I’m pretty sure this blurb should win a Pulitzer

The music comes at you with POWER and intrigue… A-la a a brutal scuffle between Megazord and whatever Rita Repulsa could conjure up on the day. Except this time with less property damage and more goals!!!

NOTHING gets me jacked up for some sweet, sweet J league highlights like some fucking generic mid 90’s metal, (except for possibly fiery hot SPEED metal. SOMEONE CUE SOME DRAGONFORCE DAMNIT!!!!)

Sorry that was inappropriate, back to whatever my point was. Ah yes, this fantastic golazo made possible by Leonardo. The legendary Brazilian, who for some reason spent 2 years at the Kashima Antlers scored 30 goals in 49 games, to be sure none better than this. I won’t ruin it with a description, or attempt to do it justice with my text, I suggest you just watch..

-Cheers
