My Favorite World Cup Goals
The World Cup may be over but the dust hasn’t settled and I’m still digesting it. I recently saw a blog post where this dude ranks all 171 world cup goals from best to worst. These types of rankings are pretty subjective but the top 10 are fairly accurate. I used his post grab my three personal favorites and post them below:
1. James Rodriguez, Colombia vs. Uruguay
2. Robin Van Persie, The Netherlands vs. Spain
3. Mario Gotze, Germany vs. Argentina
Personally, I like goals where the goal-keeper has no reaction to the strike. Check out the goalkeeper from goal #2. He just stands there and watches in agony as the ball goes in. I love those goals. Rodriguez’s goal was simply spectacular. That’s why it’s my favorite.
