Croatian Player Scores Magnificent Goal From Border-Line Impossible Angle
Croatian forward Marko Livaja scored a brilliant goal on Sunday during a top-flight Croatian match. The goal was so good that fans are questioning if he really meant to shoot or if it was a cross that was so bad that it turned into a goal.
This Livaja goal vs. Osijek might not be a candidate for goal of the year, but it’s definitely worth a watch.

Shot or cross? Hajduk Split player Marko Livaja scores from the tightest of angles pic.twitter.com/Pn7o6H5jTd— Guardian sport (@guardian_sport) July 26, 2021
You know you’ve scored a banger when your goalkeeper runs the length of the field to celebrate with you. The good feelings went away rather quickly for Livaja as the visiting team equalized only three minutes after his goal.
The night only got worse for Livaja’s team as they conceded again in the 87th minute and ended up losing 2-1. There’s nothing worse than when you score an amazing goal but end up losing the game anyway.
The small consolation for Mr. Livaja is that he now has an article about him on The18. Congratulations Livaja! While his goal was from a tight angle, it isn’t the best goal ever seen from this spot on the field. Roberto Carlos’ “impossible goal” for Real Madrid in 1998 is still the best goal ever seen from this tight of an angle.
