Eden Hazard v West Ham

Jamie Vardy v Swansea City
Vardy fired Leicester to the top-flight title last season and also earned himself an England call-up for Euro 2016 for his heroics in front of goal.
Having failed to find the target in the Foxes’ opening two league outings, the swift sharpshooter managed to get off the mark against Swansea, as he latched onto a precise Danny Drinkwater through ball and rattled past a helpless Lukas Fabianski.
Toni Kroos v Celta Vigo
Over to Spain next and La Liga giants Real Madrid were narrowly helped to victory thanks to a late winner from Germany international anchorman Kroos, with the midfielder delicately placing the ball right in the bottom corner.
Known for being one of world football’s pass masters, Kroos literally passes the ball past Celta Vigo’s goalie and in off the post to hand Zinedine Zidane’s Galacticos three points.

Xabi Alonso v Werder Bremen
In Germany, former Liverpool midfielder Alonso put Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich ahead with the game’s opener with a stunning half volley from outside the penalty area.
His sweet strike was the start of much misery for Munich’s opponents, as Carlo Ancelotti’s Bavarians went on to rampantly secure a 6-0 thrashing.
Xabi Alonso's first goal for Bayern Munich tonight was alright, wasn't it?! https://t.co/nUXgVzEYCm

Suso v Napoli
In a thrilling Serie A encounter between AC Milan and Napoli, Rossoneri midfielder Suso provided a sensational strike during proceedings, as he wriggled free on the edge of the box and sent a delightful left-footed effort into the top corner.
His strike wasn’t enough to help Milan run out winners, as they were defeated 4-2 by their Italian rivals, though such a strike is worth watching over and over again!

Over to the United States next and in an MLS clash between Houston Dynamos and FC Dallas, the latter side extended their lead with an impressive counter attacking goal which was clinically finished off by Michael Barrios.
The Colombian midfielder rounded off the game with this superb curing finish, which was his second of the day.

Villans fans can enjoy their young attacker’s impressive first-time strike below though!
