If you weren't scoring a spectacular goal from long range this weekend, you weren't doing it right.
Przemyslaw Kazmierczak definitely did it right.
Kazmierczak, a 32-year-old midfielder for Slask Wroclaw in the Polish Ekstraklasa, slammed in a walloping long-distance goal as his side played to a 1-1 draw against Ruch Chorzow. Kazmierczak's goal, which appears in the clip above, came in the ninth minute, and it was really something.
Starting around midfield, Kazmierczak beat a couple of defenders with a slick move before bearing down on goal. With the 18-yard box still only a rumor, Kazmierczak then sweetly struck an unstoppable left-footed shot into the top corner from long, long distance.
The ball swerved and shifted in mid-air, leaving the goalkeeper no chance. Kazmierczak's strike was so good, we're making it our Set Piece Goal of the Weekend. Enjoy.
Kazmierczak's was by no means, however, the only long-distnace wonder goal of the weekend.
In the English Premier League, Andros Townsend volleyed in the winner from outside the box for Queens Park Rangers against Sunderland. In Russia, Yura Movsisyan blasted a right-footed bombshell from a similar distance and position as Kazmierczak. And in Brazil, Guilherme slammed home a powerful free kick for Corinthians against Ituano.
Elsewhere, Hyeon-Chul Jeon produced a moment of individual genius for Chunnam Dragons in Korea. And in Major League Soccer, the Vancouver Whitecaps' Daigo Kobayashi lobbed a keeper, and the Montreal Impact's Hassoun Camara scored with an overhead kick.
