Maynor Figueroa - Stoke City v Wigan Athletic, 2009-10

Football News

As those puny of leg will attest to, kicking a football a long way can actually be quite hard. But, not only did Maynor Figueroa cream the ball over half the length of the field, the Wigan defender managed to find the back of the net.

Figueroa's brain was far sharper than any other at the Britannia Stadium on that day, as the Honduran acted almost impossibly quickly to send a free-kick from his own half towards the Stoke goal.

Thomas Sorensen could hardly act before the ball arrowed past him and into the net. What a strike.
