World Football: 50 Most Amazing Goals Ever Scored

Every goal counts the same, or so the world keeps trying to convince us.

That's rubbish, if you ask us. Every goal might count the same on the scoreboard, but all goals are not created equal.

Some goals are sublime. Some are beautiful. Some seem to transcend human ability.

Some goals change the course of games -- and, in some cases, seasons and careers.

Some goals determine league, continental and world champions.

So, no, all goals don't count the same. Even if everyone tries to convince us otherwise.

With that in mind, we've compiled a list of our top 50 goals. Ever.

We're sure you won't argue with any of them. And we're sure you won't have any complaints.

OK, so the sarcasm ends there. But seriously: What did we get right? What did we bollocks up? Which glaring omission would you like to bring to our attention?

Take a look at our list, and then have at it.
