The best goals are the goals that no one sees coming. The long goals that come out of nowhere and no one can predict. All 14 of these goals, the longest goals in football history, fall into this category.
Some of these goals were scored by the goalkeepers, some of these goals were scored by the field players, and all of these goals were scored from inside their own half. Incredible. The longest goal of them all – Tom King's world record goal – was scored from 105 yards out, the equivalent of kicking a ball the entire length of an American football field and then some.
This list for the players with the most career goals in the history of soccer stretches from players who played in the early 1900s to the present day. Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi score at an unprecedented rate in today’s game, but there are those from history whose rate of scoring was even more impressive.
The Guinness World Record for the most goals scored in a specified period is 1,281 by the Brazilian great Pele, born Edson Arantes do Nascimento.
Almost 365 days later and we’re still in quarantine — oh, the look on your face if I could’ve told you this last March. But don’t fear, good TV is still here! The best soccer movies and TV shows promised in 2021 are compiled below. We’ll update this list when we hear of more.

One element the FIFA videos games have the edge on compared to any other video game series is their soundtracks. Over the past two decades the soccer video game series has been paired to the tunes of endless bangers. The sheer volume of hits means there are also a plethora of underrated FIFA songs dying to be played.
Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero capped off a historic performance Saturday with a five-goal game in City's 6 to 1 victory against Newcastle. With his team down 1-0, the Argentinian rattled off five goals in a span of 20 minutes, including hat trick in only 8 minutes. Aguero joins Andy Cole, Alan Shearer, Jermain Defoe, and Dimitar Berbatov as the only players to score five goals in a Premier League game. Could this be the fastest hat trick of all time?
Murphy's Law posits that anything that can go wrong will go wrong. Soccer practice is not an exception to Murphy's Law, so let's break it down:
If you are a referee then you probably have to deal with a lot of angry, crazy, annoying, loud fans. It’s quite the skill to be able to ignore the never-ending noise and focus on the game. We are all guilty of yelling at a referee at some point in our lives; whether it was from the stands, at the TV or on the field. Here’s a list of the top, most common insults fans yell at referees. But, in the end, the referees have the most power allowing them to make any call or throw anyone out. Scream as much as you want, they aren’t listening.
With the Premier League season nearly half over, this current lull in matches is the perfect time to look back at the campaign so far.
We've all been following the matches and have a general idea about where each team sits in the league table, so the next logical step is to dive deeper into the analytical side of the Premier League and examine the expected goals league table.
The frantic finish to the 2019-20 season, the rejiggered smorgasbord of the new campaign and nine months of quarantine have combined to create an unceasing storm of football on our televisions. In many ways it’s been a godsend; in many ways it’s been an obscene bit of servility to broadcast dollars. What are these absurdly sterile performances — played out in soulless grounds across the world — if not momentary benediction for the promise of better times ahead?
