VIDEO: The greatest goal ever

In the Venezuela-Ecuador game, a World Cup qualifier, I'm pretty sure I saw the most awesome goal of all-time.

It was heavenly.

Here are some grand hypotheticals in order sports that I equate this goal to...
  • BASEBALL - A walk-off grand slam off a suicide squeeze bunt resulting in a bench-clearing brawl involving Don Zimmer.

  • FOOTBALL - A 99-yard Hail Mary hook-and-ladder, with three Gatorade showers and a Chad Johnson celebration in the snow.

  • HOCKEY - A beer-induced slugfest, ending in a Zamboni race and a guest appearance from Anna Kournikova and the Mighty Ducks.

  • NASCAR - A beer-induced 30-car pile-up that results in 200 instant replays, a shake and bake, and everyone beating the crap out of Tony Stewart.
You guys get the point. It was super awesome.

So here it is...

Why was that cool? First off it's soccer, so I don't get how it's so good. It looked like the goalie just blew the goal....

to the guy above: your an idiot, you dont get how it's soo good ? how about devin hester td returns everytime he touches the football or carson plamer throwing a 90 yard td to ocho cinco....well its the same thing for soccer, only this goal is something that happens once every 10 years or so and it was a freaking missile

this about the same as beckham's epl goal back in 94(?) but it wasn't off a free kick like this one was. This one had more skill involved but Beckham's had more guts. But, just as impressive...

Que putas estaba haciendo ese portero culero

it was good, but not that good. the guys in the wall ducked and the goalie was out of position, enough said.

That was a fine shot, but I think Seedorf's bomb was better.

Terrible terrible goalkeeping. No excuse to miss a shot so badly from that far out.

LOL come on guys if u can’t admire that goal there's something wrong with you, O.K it’s not the greatest goal ever and it can be argued that the keeper was out of position, the wall ducked etc. but take into consideration the speed/ height at which the ball came in the keeper had about 3 seconds to get into position to take the ball safely without having a dive and there’s not many keepers in this world who can stop a ball coming from that angle at that speed while moving into position which in my opinion no keeper would have been behind his own wall anyway to be in position to take that safely and not to mention the pure element of surprise WHO THE HELL HAS A STRIKE FROM OUT THERE!!! :P well done to Venezuela and SI SE PUEDE ECUADOR!!! :D

That's insane. Was that the same keeper David Beckham humiliated in the World Cup? Get that man a stiff one.

Marvelous freekick.

But not the greatest goal ever.

Super Christ said...

It was luck. The goalie came out a bit to get the shot but it deflected off the wall into the top corner. Bullet shot though.

No dp its not the same keeper :)

Best free kick - maybe. Best goal? Nahhh. I've seen 10 in the past year I can think of that best that one. The Messidonna goal, the Essien goal against Arsenal, the Ronaldinho bicycle kick, a few Wesley Snijder efforts for Madrid, Totti. How about Lampard's goal against Barcelona in Champions League last year. Tugay in the BPL against (i forget). McFadden for Scotland over France. Even Beckham over DC United in SuperLiga.

Keeper goal. Even Mora (the guy who was the keeper at the world cup)is a better keeper than viteri. Viteri should not be the goalie. He sucks
