This week the FIFA Fan Movement selections feature one of the most bizarre goals you'll ever see, a dream debut for a pioneer of Costa Rican women's football and much more.

Pulisic's fairytale hat-trick

From Maria Laura Arce (Guatemala) Christian Pulisic became Chelsea's youngest hat-trick goalscorer in Premier League history in the Blues' 4-2 win at Burnley, and Maria wanted to make sure you saw these priceless images of a young Pulisic visiting Stamford Bridge back in 2006.

Hadjuk Split's truly bizarre goal

From Larissa Ruiz (Mexico) It's not often that an optical illusion plays a key role in helping a team score a goal, but that was the case in Croatian club side Hadjuk Split's 2-0 win over Slaven Belupo. Watch for yourself below, and thanks to Larissa for sending this in!

Dream debut in Alajuela

From Valeria Kivers (Costa Rica) Shirley Cruz is one of the great pioneers for women's football in Costa Rica, and after successful stints playing for French powerhouses Lyon and Paris Saint-Germain as well as a stop in Jiangsu Suning in China PR, she returned home to her childhood club, Alajuelense. And, of course, Cruz scored on her debut in a moment that inspired Valeria and surely many others.

More refereeing history made

From Amy Kate (USA) After Stephanie Frappart became the first woman to officiate a major men's European match, there are more female officials making their mark at the highest levels of officiating on the continent. Sian Massey-Ellis became the first English woman to officiate a UEFA Europa League fixture when PSV and LASK played to a goalless draw on 24 October in Eindhoven, and Amy wrote about the historic moment in her blog The Red Way.

A historic night in a historic place

From Igor Correia (Brazil) Flamengo booked their place in the Copa Libertadores final in emphatic fashion, and Fan Movement member and Flamengo super fan Igor was there to capture each and every moment. Flamengo are one step away from qualifying for the FIFA Club World Cup Qatar 2019™, with the winner of their final against River Plate on 23 November representing the continent at the club world finals.
