Best goal of World Cup 2022 goes to: Richarlison’s scissor kick

The best goal for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar has been decided and it was awarded by fans to Brazil’s forward Richarlison. 

The goal was Brazil’s second in a match with a 2-0 finish, with the Tottenham star finding the net with a stunning scissor kick volley against Serbia as they opened Group C. 

The Brazilian player scored three goals in total during the entire tournament, but this particular one, with Richarlison positioned 12 yards out in the centre of the goal, that won the overall vote. 

The player use his first touch to flick the ball up into the air and then spun as the ball dropped, executing a volley whilst airborne. 

Richarlison opened the scoring for Brazil earlier and added his third goal of the tournament with a strike against South Korea for a 4-1 win. 

Brazil’s journey in the World Cup came to an end in the quarter finals after a penalty shoot-out defeat suffered against Croatia.

Frostbite by just being outside for minutes in the US

As Malta prepares itself to have one of the sunniest and warmest Christmas holiday seasons, things in the US have taken a much colder front. 

Various international news portals are reporting how temperatures in the US could drop as low as a whopping -45°C, leading to people getting frostbite by just spending a few minutes out in the open. 

Over 200 million people – two-thirds of the US population – have been affected by this intense cold as it stretches all the way up to Canada and even down to Mexico. 

The storm has been branded as ‘once-in-a-generation, with a weather pattern called a ‘bomb-cyclone’ dropping on the 23rd of December as the air pressure drops drastically. 

Temperatures hitting the aforementioned -45°C mark means people could contract frostbite in under five to ten minutes, damaging skin and tissue of hands, feet, ears, noses and lips. 

President Joe Biden has even issued a warning, saying that this is not a snow storm that invites people to play in it like when they were kids. ‘This is serious stuff’ and has urged people to stay indoors and as warm as possible to wait the weather out.
