We are huge football fans here at Direct Soccer! As well as playing the game, managing and coaching teams, we love to watch the beautiful game too!
There’s been so many amazing goals scored in the last 20 years, from David Beckham’s timely freekick against Greece to send England to the 2002 World Cup, to Sergio Aguero’s stoppage time winner to take the Premier League title in 2012 for Manchester City. But here’s a selection of some of our most memorable goals from our 20 years in business along with why we remember them!
“An amazing goal, one that meant Scotland had done the double over France in our qualifying group!”
“Ronaldinho scoring with a long range free kick over David Seaman’s head during the 2002 World Cup.”
“Craig Wighton’s winner against Dundee United in 2016 that relegated the Arabs to the Championship!”
“The opening goal that won the cup!”
“A global superstar making his home debut for Dundee, just out of rehab, Claudio Caniggia scored a brilliant chip against Motherwell in 2001”.
Our final three goals that we’ve loved have all been picked by some of our resident Manchester United fans, but they aren’t all goals scored by the Red Devils.
“I love a good headed goal, so this one from Cristiano Ronaldo in the Champions League Final in 2008 against Chelsea is one I remember well!”
“I was a big Barça fan, so Ronaldinho’s display against Real Madrid at the Bernabeu in 2005 where he destroyed Barca’s arch rivals with 3 great goals was an iconic game for me.”
“Champions League final, the night of what would have been Sir Matt’s birthday, and United toiling against Bayern Munich. “The comeback completed in emphatic style by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to win the European Cup and the Treble! Nothing since as a United fan has come close to this amazing game, the night I also saw my dad cry for the first time!”
