KICKTV's weekend rewind: Lionel Messi, Yaya Toure & Co. drop goals from distance (GIFs) | SIDELINE

Starting this Saturday at 3 pm ET, you will no longer be forced to suffer through a weekend of soccer without getting your healthy fix of Major League Soccer action.

Not until next winter, that is.

That said, this weekend provided some great goals — the majority of which from distance — thanks to those somewhat, kind of, marginally talented European leagues. OK, they're actually pretty good, too. Just check out these long-range bombs. And look out for a cameo from former D.C. United man Hamdi Salihi, who unleashed a sick bike.

Shoutout to KICKTV for the super sweet GIF action below.

1. Yaya Touré nails the equalizer to start City’s comeback

2. Messi scores a classic Messi goal — Should this just be called "the Messi"?

3. Hamdi Salihi summons his inner Thierry Henry to score this bicycle for Hapoel Acre

4. Pinpoint accuracy from Aritrz Aduriz for Athletic Bilbao

5. Teamwork is what we like to see, and Werder Bremen did it wonderfully
