Golden Goal

In simplistic terms, the object of football is to score more goals than your opponent to win the match. However, goals can take on mythical status due to their importance, or style of execution, and can be either be forgotten or lauded depending on the circumstances surrounding them. Golden Goal is our inaugural web series, exploring a variety of great goals and the story behind them.
