But to ask this question, what really makes a goal special? Is it the amount of people you dribble before you score, the distance from which you fired the shot or maybe if the goal is an acrobatic effort.

For a player like Messi, his best goals come when he dribbles his way through 3 or 4 players and then calmly nutmegs the keeper to score.

For a player like Ronaldo, he doesn't wiggle his way through 4 players to score, but his athleticism allows him to score acrobatic efforts, amazing headers and long range volleys.

However, the kind of goal that truly delights me and most football fans are long range shots, which are so fast that the keeper doesn't even know what to do.

Sit back, relax and let the show begin.
