Saturday’s 61-yard strike “among the best” in Premier League history

Honduran and Danish World Cup talent were featured in a Premier League match Saturday, with Wigan’s Maynor Figueroa firing off a 61 yard missile against Stoke’s Thomas Sorensen in an otherwise uneventful game. In the 71st minute, Wigan was awarded a penalty shot behind the midfield line. As Stoke’s goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen cheated to the right side of the field, Wigan’s defender Figueroa decided to fire off a salvo at the undefended goal… 61 yards away. Figueroa struck quickly, punching the line drive over the heads of his opponents, and sending Sorensen into a frantic backpedal. The ball traveled through the upper far corner of the goal, just out of reach of the goal keeper.
