Goalkeeper Imran’s goal is surely the first of its kind in Maldives. But it has already happened twice in the premier league era of English football. Goalkeeper Tim Howard of Everton on 5th January of this year scored similar goal which bounced few yards in front of Bolton Wanderers keeper (ok the one slight difference it is huge kick from his penalty area for a back pass from one of his own teammates. ) Have a look: ( Paul Robinson of Tottenham on 17th March 2007 scored from a free-kick just outside his own penalty area that bounced over keeper of Watford and into the net. Goalkeeper Pat Jennings of Tottenham, however, in 1967 Charity Shield match scored the same kind of goal scored by Imran. (

we need a player like adhuham, xaad and bakaa next season after transfering oppo to another club (i am one of the biggest fans of oppo in his career but now, we have to accept the fact that he's not physically upto the AFC cup standard, and also, oppo and baka has personal problems so only one of them plays for a team. and looking at newradiant bakaa would be more important) so that the midfield can be controlled by bakaa, xaad and ivan, and dhagey, tom and umar as strikers
