This is one of the best goals we've ever seen.

It may not be the fanciest of shots, but you couldn't ask for better placement.

The United States' Heather O'Reilly hit this fantastic shot to put the U.S. ahead of Colombia, 1-0, just minutes into the game. The shot, which sails to the upper left corner of the net, left the Colombian goalie with no chance of stopping it.

The U.S. eventually went on to win the match 3-0, despite a few unlucky shots that unfortunately hit the frame of the net. While Colombia put forth a good, athletic effort, they proved to be no match for the U.S.'s offensive onslaught.

You can see O'Reilly's beautiful, early go-ahead goal below.
