    Alex Morgan's goal in the U-20 World Cup Soccer Final was amazing. She beat two players and then when another player came over and tackled the ball, she dribbled behind her back, and then beat another player and pounded the ball in the upper right corner of the net as she was falling down.

    She shielded the ball quite well, but only "beat" one player

    ,

    Actually, the other player won the ball, and it was only a lucky break that won it back.

    Hmmmm. It was a miskick. And far from being pounded, it floated over the keeper who, incidentally, looked about 5ft tall.

    It's not bad for a chick, but it is not a great individual goal. Great individual goals are goals where a single player has such complete control of the ball that they create something out of nothing without giving the other team a chance to touch it before finishing clinically.

    These are great individual goals.....

    And, just for balance, my vote for the greatest team goal ever scored. Carlos Alberto. Brazil. 1970 World Cup Final against Italy.
