    Is this the longest-range goal ever?

    Al-Ahli Jeddah captain Mohammad Massad scored from 100 yards out during a Saudi League match recently, which is more than sufficient excuse to take a look at some other blinding strikes from distance. In case you haven't seen Massad's long-range goal yet, here it is:

    The most recent example in the Premier League is Maynor Figueroa's rocket for Wigan against Stoke. Of course, you would have seen it dozens of times by now, but this clip comes complete with nifty virtual reality analysis, showing you would Figueroa and Stoke keeper Thomas Sorensen could see when the shot was unleashed. If this doesn't end up as goal of the season, we can't wait to see the one that beats it.
    David Beckham announced himslef on the football world at large with his famous effort from his own half against Wimbledon, but he repeated the feat for LA Galaxy in 2008 against the Kansas City Wizards. After the Wizards' goalkeeper had come upfield looking for a late equaliser, Beckham struck to hit the hit the empty net from 70 yards to seal a 3-1 win for the Galaxy.


    Xabi Alonso scored his second Liverpool goal from his own half against Newcastle. His first came against Luton Town in the FA Cup, a goal which netted one Reds fan a load of cash after he dreamt that the Spaniard would do so and placed a bet on it happening. This one, however, was far more impressive, even if it was greatly aided by a floundering Steve Harper.
    Colombia goalkeeper Luis Martinez scored from a drop-kick in his own area during a friendly with Poland in the run-up to the 2006 World Cup. The keeper sent his kick upfield and saw it bounce over Tomasz Kuszczak into creep under the crossbar. Still, it didn't do Kuszczak's career too much harm, as he moved to Manchester United from West Brom the very same summer.
    Argentina striker Martin Palermo gave another reason to be famous aside from missing three penalties in one match when he scored this cracker for Boca Juniors in a Buenos Aires derby against Independiente.
    This final goal, despite the chant to the contrary, was not from the halfway line, but is still one of the most shocking winners in a European final. Gooners, look away now.

    Can you think of any have missed?
