The Best Soccer Goal GIFs of 2013

Ronaldo Ibrahimovic

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.
