There is no scoring in soccer? Don't tell that to Afonso Alves of Heerenveen

Today in Holland, another one of the myths that are perpetuated by the American mainstream media was debunked. Afonso Alves, a Brasilian international, scored seven goals in one game in a Dutch Eredivisie encounter for Heerenveen versus SC Hercales Almelo. Alves is a teammate of Michael Bradley, who is the son of US National Team Coach Bob Bradley.

Heerenveen 9 x SC Heracles Almelo 0.

Here is the recap. Alves scored the seven goals in a time span of only 19 actual minutes. Nine for the first three, and ten for the last four. If you watch the video in its entirety, you will see that he had a near miss, and jumped over the ball to allow a Storm to score his second goal.
  • 10th minute: Alves.
  • 17th minute: Alves.
  • 19th minute: Alves.
  • 50th minute: Storm.
  • 68th minute: Alves.
  • 70th minute: Alves.
  • 75th minute: Alves.
  • 78th minute: Alves.
  • 81st minute: Storm.
Last year, Senhor Alves scored 34 goals in the Eredivisie; however, due to the scoring coefficient used by UEFA, Francesco Totti, with 26 goals in the Serie A, was deemed the Golden Shoe winner in Europe.

According to Ruben Olthuis, Johan Cryuff and Marco Van Basten both scored six goals in one game in the Dutch Eredivisie. Alves has now set the record in Holland.
