- 5 In conclusion
This is an outstanding goal. And it’s even more so the case when you consider the fact that it’s scored in the final of the biggest football competition in the world. It starts innocuous enough. Marcelo gets the ball on the outside of the penalty area. He makes a move to throw off his opponent and then crosses the ball inside the penalty area. But the ball is still relatively far from the goal – and it’s headed towards Gareth Bale. A lesser player would try to control the ball and look for passes – or turn and shoot towards the goal. But not Gareth Bale. As he sees the ball, he flies into the air and, with a perfect show of skill, he does the perfect bicycle kick and scores a beautiful goal. The goalkeeper flies up in the air trying to get the ball – but he is powerless. Truly an outstanding goal.
Philippe Coutinho’s perfectly placed shot off the post (Barcelona vs. Girona in La Liga)
Philippe Coutinho grabs a ball on the outside of the penalty area. He makes a move and then sets the ball up for a shot. He then proceeds to place the most technically proficient shot you can imagine. The shot travels for a long time and then hits the far post – and finishing behind the line. It’s a screamer.
Griezmann’s bicycle kick (Atletico Madrid vs. Roma in UEFA Champions League)
You can see that the bicycle kicks are a big part of this list. And with good reason – this is a very difficult move to make. And it’s exceptionally difficult to score a goal with it. Well, Griezmann has done it again – proving he’s definitely one of the best players in the world. To be fair, he was very near the goal and the goalkeeper was powerless to intervene. But it still is a magnificent goal.
Dzeko’s screamer against Chelsea (Roma vs. Chelsea in UEFA Champions League)
Here’s a great match to see. Roma versus Chelsea in the European Champions League. The final result was 3-3. Both teams gave their best games they could. But if there is one moment to single out, then it would have to be Dzeko’s beautiful goal. He truly is a clinical striker. A Roma player gave a beautiful cross from the middle of the pitch into the penalty area. Dzeko understood that this is a killer ball and decided to use it – and he did not waste any time with superfluous movements. He smashed the ball right as it was falling – with a beautiful volley shot. The Chelsea goalkeeper was powerless to react to this.
These were the some of the best goals in European Football for 2018. There were many other beautiful goals, to be fair. It’s impossible to put them all in a small list. We hope you will get to enjoy the thrill of watching these beautiful goals yourself.
