MLS has announced that the goal (above) scored by former Akron Zips, and current Portland Timbers winger Darlington Nagbe has been awarded the 2011 Goal of the Year. Nagbe came into MLS with a reputation as a creator rather than a goal-scorer. But the lasting image from the Liberian’s rookie campaign turned out to be a juggling wonder-strike for the ages. Nagbe scored the golazo in the 45th minute of what was eventually a 2-1 home loss to Sporting KC in Week 16.

Yesterday, the U.S. U-23 National Team had a friendly against Bayer Leverkusen’s reserve team. Terrence Boyd scored a wonder-goal of his own during the scrimmage following a great individual effort. It’s obvious that both goals took extreme skill to juggle, and then striking the ball into the goal, but is Terrence Boyd’s juggling act better than the “Goal of the Year? Take a look below:

Is this the greatest celebration fail, ever? Well, thanks to our Facebook fan Alex Denning who sent this video to us via our Facebook Fan Page. This was the third goal scored by Ouachita Baptist University vs. Harding University, with the aforementioned hilarious celebration!

PSV’s Jermaine Lens might have had the best goal of the 2011 season, and it’s only late August. There was almost no angle to the goal, he was standing in the corner when he struck the ball, pure brilliance (or luck).

What an amazing goal. The talent level on this youngster is off the charts. Such creativity and skill set. It will be very interesting to see where he ends up in the next year.

Whether or not you like Hockey is irrelevant in appreciating how amazing/difficult this goal is. Everyone on the Nashville Predators defense should be embarrassed, they all were made to look like 5th graders playing keep away.

Apparently training with Thierry Henry has inspired Juan Agudelo to copy his move from a few years back. The old story of the aging master imparting his wisdom on the promising young talent has written itself over and over again already, but now we see that it might be more than just a tired cliche. Which one is better though? Thierry Henry’s was against Manchester United and Agudelo’s was during a match that had all but finished.

Fastest. Goal. Ever.

It took just three seconds for Portugal’s Futebol Clube de Oliveira do Hospital to score from the opening kickoff against a team that may or may not be a group of fans who won a raffle to compete against a professional club. This is crazy.

It reminds me of watching my 6-year-old nephew play his first ever match last weekend. Poor kid lost his head at the first whistle. He proceeded to slide tackle the ball away from his teammate, dribble through his confused backline then beat his own goalkeeper 1v1 on an unintentional header that ricocheted off of both posts. He celebrated by pulling his shorts down and lapping the field while screaming, “Hat trick! Hat trick!” (He’s still learning soccer lingo).

But even that took 10 seconds of match time – this was done in three!

I guess sometimes even the pros get caught with their pants down.

Goal of the year?

Written by Administrator

These crazy goals are becoming more common sights on YouTube but they are still gorgeous to watch. In Paraguay’s second division, Sport Colombia’s Quinonez Wilson kicked a near 90-yard free kick for a goal earlier this week. Then he receives a yellow card for taking off his shirt in celebration. The funniest part is the ref waits for him to put on the shirt, just to give him the card.

Despite getting beat down by Schalke in a Champions League match, Inter Milan was able take one positive thing from the thrashing. Milan’s Dejan Stankovic’s goal was an amazing strike from distance, he kicked the ball after a volley was played back to him from midfield basically.

Could this be “the best goal in a loss” of year? It’s definitely not the “best goal of the year”; Wayne Rooney has that honor after his amazing bicycle kick for Manchester United earlier in the year.

After the jump check out Rooney’s goal

Bad news, the shortage of good American soccer movies will continue. Unfortunately Gerard Butler and Russell Brand are going to try their hand at making an American soccer movie (even though neither is American).

Gerard Butler’s film is going to be another ‘The Bounty Hunter’ except with some soccer balls and more ‘Desperate Houswives’. Russell Brand is going to be an alcoholic ex-footballer stranded in a place where no one cares about the sport. Hooray, another out-of-place comedy from Russell Brand.
