If you're a U.S. national team fan, you should be quite familiar with the Honduras national team and its players, having seen the U.S. team play them four times in 2009. But just in case you were starting to forget, here is a goal from Honduran left back Maynor Figueroa that is sure to stick in your memory bank.

In Wigan Athletic's 2-2 draw against Stoke City on Saturday, Stoke committed what appeared to be a harmless foul, but Figueroa had other ideas as he quickly blasted a powerful and well-placed free kick from his own half that sailed over goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen.

British media outlet the Daily Mail has asked its readers if this is the Premiership's best goal ever, and while such an accolade is debatable, the goal is definitely a goal-of-the-year candidate due to its power, placement and trajectory.

What do you think of Figueroa's goal? Consider it among the EPL's best ever?
