Ronaldo's free-kick? Rubbish! Check this...

Was Cristiano Ronaldo’s free-kick the best ever? Maybe. But how about this one from a game between Almeria and Valladolid?

And yet the best set-play so far this season in Spain is in fact not a free-kick at all, but a kick-off – the fastest ever La Liga goal. No blind hoof, this, it’s entirely deliberate. In fact, Valladolid had tried it once before.
