Young and old scored fine goals across the world this weekend. The best, though, came from an in-his-prime Moussa Sow.

Sow, 26, scored a slick over-the-shoulder volley as Fenerbahce drew 1-1 with Eskisehirspor on Saturday in the Turkish Süper Lig. The goal, which served as a second-half equalizer for Fener, appears in the clip above.

It's our Set Piece Goal of the Weekend. Enjoy.

With Fener trailing 1-0 in the 57th minute, Sow ran onto a lofted pass from Dirk Kuyt (hey!), and in one smooth motion, turned his back to face the goal and flipped the ball over his back shoulder and into the net with his right foot.

Not bad, eh?

Fener had trailed after the hosts went ahead through Necati Ates' 45th-minute penalty. The visitors had Caner Erkin sent off in the 26th minute for what the Hurriyet Daily News called a "harsh" red card.

The match ended 1-1. Fener are fourth in the table, two points behind leaders Galatasaray.

Other contenders this week included both young and old.

In Croatia, 16-year-old sensation Alen Halilovic curled home a beauty that belied his years. In the second tier of Mexican football, 33-year-old Oscar Rojas rifled in a long-range rocket against Estudiantes Tecos.

But we think Sow's goal was a notch above. Tell us what you think in the comments below.
