If soccer is the game you have always loved, either to play or to watch, soccer goals should be one of the milestones in a game of soccer that you would dare not miss. After all, some of the best pieces of football history are closely connected to soccer goals. What happens in the defensive line or the midfield doesn’t really matter because it is the goals that decide the fate of a soccer game.
For example, people even now remember the infamous, “Hand of God” goal, Diego Maradona scored against England in the FIFA World Cup 1986. Or, the famous Ronaldinho lob over Peter Seaman in the 1998 edition. Unfortunately, the Englishmen were at the receiving end of both these masterpieces, but it goes to show the impact soccer goals have on people’s psyche after they come out of a soccer match.
The mystery, if at all there was one about soccer goals, is revealed around this fact – With every goal scored in a match, the goal scoring team gets to rejoice in its achievement. But, more importantly, the fact that the player who actually sends the ball into the net has already done something special – He has won over about 4-5 players including the goalkeeper who are assigned the responsibility to cut off any scoring efforts.
Often, it is these things that cross the minds of the team who desires to score goals, unconsciously albeit. Though, a defensive game has a charm in its own, but even the most defensive teams would agree that they cannot win matches without scoring at least 1 goal. And in some occasions, when the ploy backfires, defensive teams adopt a more attacking formation only to score more goals, either to restore parity to the proceedings, or to finish victors.
