This half-field equalizer in Liga MX was this weekend’s best goal
It’s been a tough week for soccer fans. The Premier League gave us a bunch of scoreless draws, the Bundesliga title race is sewn up and there has been a dearth of worldies scored.

It wasn’t just that Queretaro’s Sanvezzo caught Toluca’s goalkeeper way off his line, although he did. It was Sanvezzo’s placement into the corner of the far post that made it impossible for goalkeeper Alfredo Talavera to get a hand on it.
With that goal and one more from Sanvezzo 20 minutes later, the former Vancouver Whitecaps striker locked up the 2-1 comeback win for Los Gallos Blancos. It looks like a lost cause for Queretaro to advance to the playoffs — they sit way down in 14th place with the final week of the Clausura coming next week — but if they can score more goals like this, who cares?
This goal is surely contesting the last-gasp equalizer from a 44-year-old goalkeeper nicknamed The Rabbit for the best goal of this week — both in Liga MX and around the world.
