We’re 18 games into the World Cup and – so far – there are two goals that stand out as a cut above the rest.
The first? Dutch forward Robin van Persie’s acrobatic header in Holland’s 5-1 opening game win against Spain. You’ve seen this one by now. A truly lovely goal, as brilliant for the sheer gusto of the move as the technical skill required to pull it off.The second goal comes from MLS' own Tim Cahil as he struck the volley 12 yards out and bent it over the Netherlands goalkeeper.
The second just happened Wednesday morning and comes courtesy of New York Red Bulls forward Tim Cahill. Take a look at this. What an absolutely insane volley. Bravo.
Which goal was better? You make the call – vote below.
