The ball game, invented in England over a century ago, is now the most popular sport. The most valued is the individual skill of football players who are able to make an extraordinary game. Today we recall the top ten most beautiful goals in the history of football and the circumstances in which they were scored. This is not an official rating, but only a subjective selection and each fan will easily remember even a lot of no less cool moments.
10. George Weah
Many will remember George Weah as the 25th president of Liberia, but the fans of AC Milan forever remembered him for the incredible goal he scored for the club in 1996.
He managed to pick up the ball in his own penalty area and run through the entire field to penetrate the opponent's goalkeeper. Along the way, he with unsurpassed ease dodged the three defenders of Verona.
George was recognized as the best African football player of the 20th century, and also became the first and so far the only Africans to receive the Golden Ball.
9. Dennis Bergkamp
Dennis Bergkamp He was known for his skill and control of the ball, but his goal for Arsenal in the game against Newcastle in 2002 left everyone stunned, as no one even expected this from him.
It is difficult to accurately describe what he did, because no one else seems to have done this before. We can say that he threw the ball around the defender, turned and hit exactly at the far corner, but it will be too dry, so it's better to see for yourself.
8. Roberto Carlos
This left-footed undersized Brazilian is called one of the best left-backs in history, and his ability to break free throws is considered a reference. He scored many goals, but the most famous - 22 years ago in a match against the French team.
With the score 0-0, the French fouled on Romario and went up to the ball to fulfill the standard Carlos. It was 35 meters to the goal, which was far for a strike, but Roberto did not stop and he took the run right from the center circle. Signature run, hit, and the ball flies past, but suddenly changes its trajectory and flies near the barbell. Fabien Barthez helplessly watches him.
This goal was subsequently named "naked contrary to the laws of physics ", since when shooting from behind the Brazilian's back, it is clearly visible that initially the ball flew past the gate. In 2010, it was even studied by French scientists, who came to the conclusion that it is almost impossible to repeat this.
7. Manuel Negrete
Last spring, FIFA conducted a survey among fans to determine the best goal in the history of the World Championships and before you is its winner.
In the summer of 1986, Mexico played with the national team of Bulgaria and the main character of that meeting became Manuel Negretewho scored a terrific goal with side scissors. First, he threw the ball to a partner near someone else's penalty area, he returned the ball to touch and the Mexican managed to hit in the fall.
At the Aztec stadium, where the match took place, they even erected a monument in honor of this goal, which does not happen so often.
10 years ago, Munich Bavaria was not yet the hegemon of the German Bundesliga, and Wolfsburg in 2009 without any difficulty made the capital's grand with a score of 5: 1.
The match was bright, but the goal became a cherry on the cake Graphite, which was clogged with mocking ease. Having beaten two defenders in their penalty area, the player also beat the goalkeeper, after which, while he was back to the goal, he hit with a heel, hitting exactly the corner.
Pele. 1959 year
We will start, of course, with the legendary and unsurpassed King of Football Edson Arantis do Nascimento, or rather, Pele.
In 1959, in the game “Santos” with “Juventus”, 18-year-old Pele, who plays for the Brazilian team, beating three players and the goalkeeper, scored a goal with his head.
Experts admit that out of almost a thousand goals scored by a Brazilian striker, this is Pele's most beautiful goal.
Unfortunately, the record was not preserved, but the moment is reproduced in 3D graphics.
5. Zlatan Ibrahimovic
The odious Swedish striker in his career has scored more than a dozen acrobatic goals, each of which is extraordinary and unique, like himself Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but his shot against the England team is something out of the ordinary, even by his standards.
Joe Hart, the goalkeeper of the “three lions”, came out of the goal, trying to play ahead of the curve and knocked the ball with his head in front of Ibra, and any other in his place would try to take and handle the ball, but the Swede did otherwise. Without hesitation, he hit through himself in the fall, despite the fact that the gate was 25 meters. Of particular piquancy is the fact that it was Zlatan's 4th goal in that meeting (final score 4: 2) and thus he put a bullet in the defeat of England.
It is not surprising that at the end of the year, Ibra received a prize named after Ferenc Puskash, which is awarded to the author of the most beautiful goal.
4. Lionel Messi
An ingenious Argentinean with 5 Golden Goals scored so many beautiful goals that a dozen ratings would not be enough, but the most spectacular goal can be called the Getafe goal scored in 2007. Even then, Leo's talent was not in doubt by anyone, but this solo passage of his all the same hit the entire football world.
Having got round in their half of the field, Lionel Messi easily left four (!) opponents, burst into the penalty area, beat the goalkeeper and scored.
In fact, he repeated the legendary goal of Diego Maradona (we will return to him), only made it even more elegant. No wonder many believe that Messi is much more talented than Diego Armando was in his best years. Although, if it were not for the drug's addiction to the latter, the history of football could go a different way.
The most beautiful goals in football
Let's start, of course, with the top 5 goals. Still, for their sake, fans come to the stadium. In this top 5, you can arrange goals according to your taste and color because they are diverse and each has his own football idol, which someone will put higher than the other footballer.
However, the five opens the goal Ronaldinho in mini-football style against the Chelsea goal in the Champions League match. It was in the 2004/05 season, when Chelsea became the champion in the first year of Jose Mourinho's arrival. Ronaldinho performed a “tyk” with a bang, as he did not have space for a swing and a kick, or even a cheek. The blow came to the very corner and clearly surprised the Chelsea goalkeeper. Moreover, the difficulty of execution was that Ronaldinho did not have space. There were three defenders in front of him, and one Chelsea player was already “eating up” the Brazilian. This is the goal the handsome man scored Ronaldinho has not yet squandered his playing talent exactly 10 years ago.
The second goal in our top is a wonderful goal Roberto Carlos from the free kick into the gates of the French national team in 1997, when Roberto Carlos scored on Barthez with a swirling strike along an unknown trajectory. However, the French, through a goal, will take revenge on the Brazilians to the full in the final of the 1998 World Cup. Roberto Carlos's goal can be considered the best among all goals from free-kicks and one of the best in general in world football.
The third goal belongs to the Leeds United team author. Tony Yeboahwho played a fantastic goal in one of his first games for the “whites” against Liverpool. Then the goal of Tony brought the victory to the “peacocks” 1-0. Tony didn’t score a lot, but he did it very effectively! Yeboan got a similar blow in his years in a match with Wimbledon, but that's another story. In our top, Yeboa is in third place.
Silver was given away Zinedine Zidane. His goal against Bayer in the Champions League final can only be repeated in the game simulator of zero years, where almost all the hits go to the “nines”. The great Frenchman Zizu was able to put the ball in under the Bayer crossbar with the filing of his teammate Roberto Carlos. “Real” then defeated the Germans 3-0, and Zidane proved that he is one of the best football players on the planet and it is not in vain that he is the champion of the World and Europe.
The first goal belongs to the scandalous Argentinean Diego Maradone. Goal against England at the 1986 World Cup in Mexico. The goal is that not by hand, but by a great passage through the floor of the field. In total, Maradona “cheated” six Englishmen, including Peter Shilton, the goalkeeper of the England team. Then Maradona not only scored a goal, but avenged the entire English people for the Falkland War. Argentina will eventually become the World Champion, and the British will return with nothing.
In addition to goals, we promised to talk about the most beautiful football players and the most beautiful wives of football players.
Criteria of the “most beautiful goal”
As popular wisdom says, "There is no companion for the taste and color." Therefore, it is impossible to determine which is better. A magnificent technique that allows you to circle several defenders and, coming face to face with the goalkeeper, to hit the goal, as well as an accurate and strong shot from an uncomfortable situation and / or from a great distance look equally spectacular. Deciding what is best is a matter of individual fan preference.
A separate category is made up of unusual goals. Like, for example, a goal scored by a goalkeeper who shoots from his own goal. By the way, this is not such a rare situation. Or the goalkeeper’s illiterate game at the exit, when he, having beaten off the blow, does not have time to return to the goal, and a player of the opponents calmly throws the ball over his head. And in this video you can see, perhaps, the most unusual (today) penalty shoot-out made at the Morocco championship:
There is a lack of professionalism and excessive self-confidence of the goalkeeper, adversely affecting the team.
The most beautiful football players in the world
The main sex symbol among football players deservedly is David Beckham. Well, someone, and David is good and his 40 years. Elegant, dressed with style. It takes care of itself being and always is brilliant. Already there are no bald hairstyles, crests and Native American earrings. There is only sexual brutality, so Beckham is recognized as the most beautiful footballer of the World.
Second place in sexuality Alessandro Del Piero with typical Italian beauty. Moreover, Alessandro is beautiful by nature, having the appearance of a real man, and not just a pretty face.
We give the third place Cristiano Ronaldo. The beauty of this football player just attracts fans of the younger generation. Cute face and inflated torso. Moreover, Ronaldo in his youth was not so handsome. Many believe that Ronaldo, with his millions earned, corrected himself and became a sex symbol. Be that as it may, Ronaldo today successfully advertises many products, being the face of companies. Many even love Ronaldo not as a football player, watching his victories, but elevate him to cult status, and fan from him, like from Michael Jackson.
Diego Maradona. 1986 year
We will not recall the incident that went down in history under the name “Hand of God”, but let us recall another goal of a football player scored in the same match.
Diego Maradona scored a beautiful goal at the World Cup in Mexico against England. Do not count the feints that the magician made the ball before he reached the goal, circling the half-team. And in conclusion, beautifully, past the goalkeeper sent the ball into the net.
But thanks to a goal with the hand that scored in that confrontation of Maradona, Argentina reached the semifinals of the championship.
Spectacular Goals Gallery
Our “football all” of the eighties Fedor Cherenkov in a match with the French club “Nantes” demonstrates the wonders of dribbling and stroke and finally scores a goal:
Please note: he goes one against three defenders, beats everyone, then a little hitch to disorient the opponent, passing to a friend, and when the French switched to that - again a pass and an accurate shot on goal! This gourmet episode is from football.
Another spectacular goal is scored by Zlatan Ibrahimovic (a Bosnian Muslim born in Sweden, nowadays, however, professing Catholicism). On this video you can see his incredible sense of “field size”, when he, after the goalkeeper of the opponents hits the ball, not even letting the ball touch the ground, strikes through himself in the fall and hits the gate exactly:
Of course, elementary sporting luck could not have done, but the winners are not judged. The goal was surprisingly spectacular.
And here the goalkeeper takes a free-kick from the corner of his court:
It would seem how many times it has been said: you can’t relax in sports, and this especially applies to game types! However, the goalkeeper of the rivals presumptuously felt that his goal was not in danger and before he hit the distance of the aimed hit, he could catch it or take a more convenient position to repel the attack. But everything turned out completely wrong: the ball, hitting the ground, jumps and in a steep arc (there is no way to reach it) flies over the goalkeeper. Alas, gaining experience in this way is too expensive a pleasure!
This collection does not pretend to be complete and absolute. It is clear that every sports fan has his own opinion about what is the most beautiful goal in the history of football. And it is clear that the list of spectacular goals will be longer and longer every year.
Oleg Blokhin. 1986 year

Soviet fans remember Marco’s fantastic goal against Rinat Dasayev in the 1988 Euro final, but imagine another kick from a footballer that ended with a goal.
In the match between “Ajax” and “Den Bosch” as part of the Dutch Championship, Marco Van Basten sent the ball into the net of his opponents with a beautiful shot through himself.
David Beckham. 1996 year
In the career of this talented English football player there are goals for every taste, but the fans scored in the 1996/1997 season for a long time.
In the English Premier League match between Manchester United and Wimbledon, Beckham received the ball in midfield. He looked around and, without thinking twice, sent him into the opponent's frame.
The greatest football player in the history of England took advantage of the oversight of the goalkeeper, who went far into the field from his goal. After 12 years, David, from the stands of the stadium will applaud the same goal of Wayne Rooney.
Nicky Butt. 1996 year
Everything is perfect in this beautiful goal. And a combination with David Beckham and Eric Canton, and a masterful header by Nick Butt.
Having played a gorgeous combination, the players of Manchester literally swirled the opponent and took Butt to the shock position. He seemed to hover in the air and send a round shell exactly at the gates of Newcastle.
Roberto Carlos. 1997 year
A hit and flight of a ball that cast doubt on the laws of physics. In a friendly match between the national teams of France and Brazil, a free kick was awarded to the French.
The defender of the Brazilians Roberto Carlos came up to punch him. After hitting from 35 meters, the ball flew along an incredible trajectory into the lower corner of the goal.
Scientists then explained for a long time how the ball could so fantastically go around the wall and fly into the goal. Carlos goal is recognized as the best among all goals scored in football from the penalty area.

The technique, composure, athleticism and accuracy demonstrated by the Swedish striker were phenomenal. The captain of the English national team, Stephen Gerrard, said that Ibrahimovic’s goal was the best he had ever seen.
8. Dennis Bergkamp
The Dutch footballer at the peak of his career was known for his refined craftsmanship and ball control. However, in the Arsenal match against Newcastle in 2002, he delighted and stunned fans. It is difficult to accurately describe what he did, because no one seems to have done this before. We can say that he beat the defender with a beautiful pirouette, and then sent the ball to the far corner of the opponent’s goal with an accurate shot, but you better watch this fantastic goal yourself.
Gareth Bale. 2018 year
The final game of the Champions League 2017–2018 was undoubtedly adorned by the goal of Gareth Bale, made in a jump through himself.

After that, Cantona turned to face the fans, holding his head high and looking around the field with a proud look that spoke without a word to everyone who is the best here.
6. Lionel Messi
Being one of the best footballers in the world, Lionel Messi almost always shows an excellent game. But a particularly outstanding goal in his performance was demonstrated in 2007 (home match Barcelona - Getafe), and has much in common with the famous kick of Diego Maradona. Having run 55 meters in 12 seconds, the Argentine striker went around 4 players before beating the goalkeeper and instantly sending the ball into the Getafe net.
4. Diego Maradona
In third place in the top 10 best goals in football is the famous hit, called the "Hand of God." Fans saw him at the 1986 quarter-finals of the legendary Argentinean Diego Maradona ..
Maradona overtook the ball, bounced in the direction of the penalty area, his left fist and sent him to the opponents' goal. Despite the indignation of the British, the judge counted the goal, and in the English press this episode was called "the hand of the devil." According to Diego himself, the ball was scored "partly by my head, and partly by the hand of God."
During the same game, Maradona demonstrated the most beautiful goal in the history of football of the XX century - “Goal of the Century”. To score his footballer broke into the penalty area of the English, bypassing 6 players, including the goalkeeper.
3. Roberto Carlos
The retired Brazilian footballer forever inscribed his name in the history of world football, thanks to spectacular free kicks. He performed them with superb precision and power.
Carlos scored the most unforgettable free kick that fans still remember in 1997. Then his team played against France at the Tournois de France. The ball, sent by Carlos from a distance of 35 meters, flew along a parabolic path to the right of the goal, and then bounced off the bar and flew into the net.
2. Ricardo Oliveira
The fastest goal in the history of football, according to the Guinness Book of Records, was struck by the forward of the Rio Negro club in a match against Soriano in 1998. As soon as the starting whistle sounded, Oliveira hit the ball. 2.8 seconds was enough for everything about everything.
Unofficially, this record was broken in 2009 by the player of the Saudi team Nawaf al Abed, who scored a goal 2 seconds after the starting whistle. However, the result of Oliveira has not yet been canceled. Not all players who participated in the Saudi youth clubs match were under 23, which is against the rules.
1. Manuel Negrete
In the history of world championships, the best of the best goals in football was scored by Mexican midfielder Manuel Negrete. These are the results of a fans survey conducted by FIFA from March 31 to April 9, 2018.
In June 1986, during the match “Mexico - Bulgaria” Negrete scored his goal against the Bulgarians in the fall.The ball flew at the level of his chest, but Manuel managed to punch on it, laying the body horizontally. At one of the largest stadiums in the world - Aztec, where the game took place, a monument to an outstanding goal was erected.
3. Cristiano Ronaldo
Another great player of our time with five Golden Balls has also scored many masterpieces during his career (remember at least his goal through himself in the final Champions League against Juventus), so choosing one is not an easy task.
But we still decided to include in our top his goal in the Manchester United T-shirt, when Cristiano Ronaldo was “shot” almost from the center of the field, creating a moment from literally nothing.
Then CriRo was not yet such a significant figure as now, and the biggest victories and achievements were waiting for him to come, but it is thanks to Sir Alex Ferguson and his Manchester United that we are now watching the talent of the Portuguese. If it weren’t for Ferguson, the career of the Seven could have been less successful.
2. Diego Maradona
