In the history of soccer, there have been some truly stupendous goals scored. So with an assist from YouTube, we’ve rounded up what we consider to be 25 of the most amazing, ridiculous, jaw-dropping and majestic goals of all time. Here they are.
If you’re wondering why Bergkamp is still beloved among Arsenal fans, this is Exhibit A.
Beckham didn’t bend this one as much as he just… launched it.
Carlos is one of the greatest ball-strikers in the history of soccer. (We’ll see him again later, too.) This free kick is hard to believe. The ball seems to defy the laws of physics.
The announcer says it best: “Different class!”
What’s that? You didn’t know Zlatan played for Ajax? Oh, he did. And one time he did this.
In the 2014 World Cup, Cahill brought the thunder from down under. Nope, we're not sorry about using that phrase.
Cahill’s volley is a poor man’s version of this one from van Basten. In the 1988 Euro Cup final, no less.
Roberto Carlos sees your acute angle and raises you… an impossible angle.
So yeah, this is how you chest and volley a ball. (Sorry, Mexico.)
Twenty-six consecutive passes led to this beautiful team goal for Argentina in the 2006 World Cup.
Amarikwa said he was inspired by Steph Curry to try his luck from distance. Steph Curry might be inspired by this strike, too.
