So many games, so many goals, so many … golazos.
2013 proved to be another fine season for mesmerizing soccer goals. There’s no sense ranking them on a numerical scale. The quality of a goal is in the eye of the beholder. You may enjoy a volley, or perhaps an insane dribbling move finished with a tap-in. It’s your call.
These are some of the goals we enjoyed here at The Big Lead over the last 365 days.
The Zlatan Division:
Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored one in Ligue 1 play as only he can.
Cristiano Ronaldo Division:
And Ronaldo was clutch, too, helping book Portugal a place in the World Cup.
Lionel Messi Division
How did he score this with the entire Milan team draped around him?
Luis Suarez Division:
A header from outside the box? Sure, why not?
Pajtim Kasami Division:
EPL Goal of the Year for the Fulham man? Perhaps.
Gareth Bale Division:
It’s obvious Real Madrid paid Tottenham $400 billion for the Welshman for his karate skills.
Arsenal Team Goal Division:
Arsenal played puff-puff pass on this team goal capped by Jack Wilshere.
Best Own Goal Division:
Vincent Kompany … a ball shouldn’t move like that.
Mario Balotelli Does Thing Division:
It’s not a goal, but … you know …
Most Important Bicycle Kick of the Year Division:
Mexico’s Raul Jimenez scored a bicycle kick vs. Panama which kept El Tri alive to qualify for the World Cup in October.
