Can You Guess These Unforgettable Goals Expressed Entirely From Emojis?

Some of the most memorable goals of all time, described using only emojis.

The internet is often a pretty loathsome place, what with the political, tribal vitriol humans have for one another. But on occasion it can be a pretty cool place, like with these goal emojis that inundated Twitter on Thursday.

At the prompting of the @MundialMag account, a number of soccer fans described their favorite goals using only emojis. 

The results were fun and entertaining. Let’s see how many you can figure out.

We’ll start with an easy one. 

Seeing that this is from the USWNT’s Twitter account, it’s pretty easy to figure out this will be a goal from the USWNT. Add in the initials for the goal scorer, the hint that it was in a World Cup and the opposing team, you should be able to figure it out by now.

Yep, it’s Carli Lloyd’s midfield strike against Japan in the 2015 Women’s World Cup Final, one of Lloyd’s three goals on the day as the USWNT claimed its third World Cup title. 

Now then, let’s get down to business. We’ll number 10 goals here and then place the answers at the bottom. See how many you can get and let us know how you did.
