Not many people will know who Quique Cubas is, or know about his Spanish Fifth division club Arosa, but he has scored a truly brilliant goal.
We have already had some contenders for the Puskas award this season; this unbelievable goal from Hakan Calhanoglu, this extraordinary goal in the Jordanian league and this superb free kick by Dario Khan. But we have yet another contender for a nomination for the Puskas Award: a magnificent individual goal.
Cubas received the ball in his own half, turned superbly away from one opposition player, pulled off a classy "Panna" past another, dribbled past yet another player and unleashed another delightful "Panna" to work his way to one-on-one with the goalkeeper.
He showed brilliant strength and pace to hold of a backtracking defender poking towards the ball at his feet, maintained incredible composure to dummy the keeper, took it round him and was left with an open goal. It was a moment of sheer genius, a solo goal the likes of Maradona, Messi and Best would have been proud of.
The Galician-based club have never hit the headlines before (indeed their only player ever to play in La Liga was former Sporting Gijon and Burgos defender Manuel Jimenez Abalo. This goal is probably the finest SC Arosa moment in their 68-year history.
