The 8 goals of World Cup Day 2, ranked . Spoiler alert: Cristiano Ronaldo is featured in this list. By Nate [email protected] Updated Jun 15, 2018, 5:20pm EDT. This was just a bummer to see, and not the way you want to see a World Cup game decided. Morocco was the better team for most of the 94

Through five complete days of World Cup play, there still hasn’t been a scoreless draw. Monday’s slate had a couple of very high-scoring games two, with a total of seven goals When the best goal of the tournament is voted on three weeks from now, this one is definitely going to be in the running.

Paul Pogba scored a winner, Iceland netted a historic goal, and a we saw a lot of penalties.

The third day of the World Cup was a long one. We had four games, lots of banter — so, so much banter, especially around Lionel Messi and his missed penalty kick — and lots of goals to discuss.

So let’s discuss them. Actually, even better — let’s discuss them after ranking them.

8. Etebo own goal

This is the second heartbreaking own goal we’ve seen already in the World Cup. Friday brought Morocco to tears, and on Saturday it was Nigeria’s turn, as a valiant defensive efforts against a rampant Croatia attack was undone when a scuffed header from Mario Mandzukic was turned in off Oghenekaro Etebo and into the back of the net. It was an incredibly unfortunate moment — but that’s just how this sport works sometimes.

Maine ranked-voting system used for first time in primary: A look at the process

  Maine ranked-voting system used for first time in primary: A look at the process When Maine voters head to the polls for June 12 primary elections, the way they vote will be drastically different. Maine is the first state in the nation to use a ranked-choice voting system in both the congressional and statewide primary elections Tuesday.On the ballot, too, is whether voters want to continue to use ranked-voting in the future, with a ballot initiative that seeks to use ranked-choice for U.S. House and Senate races in November. The system has gotten the backing of actress Jennifer Lawrence who, in an online video, encouraged Maine voters to “protect ranked-choice and our democracy.

More than 2,000 goals have been scored in the 21 editions of the FIFA World Cup final tournaments, not counting penalties scored during shoot-outs. Since the first goal scored by French player Lucien Laurent at the 1930 FIFA World Cup , more than 1

The 1938 FIFA World Cup was the third staging of the World Cup , and was held in France from 4 to 19 June 1938. Italy retained the championship by beating Hungary 4–2 in the final.

7. Modric’s penalty buries Nigeria

Another defensive miscue from Nigeria ended their hopes of getting anything out of their opener against Croatia, with William Ekong bear-hugging Mandzukic to the ground late in their match to give away a penalty. It was a perplexing challenge, and Croatia captain Luka Modric made no mistakes, burying his shot from the spot in the low corner of the net to give his team a vital 2-0 lead and take the top spot in a difficult Group D.

6. Antoine Griezmann’s VAR-assisted penalty

This goal is notable for resulting from a penalty awarded via VAR, the sometimes-controversial tool meant to help assure that referees are making the correct decisions in a given moment. When the play happened, Argentine referee Andres Cunha didn’t see that Joshua Risdon’s challenge on Antoine Griezmann happened just inside the penalty area, but a quick VAR review showed him where the tackle happened and he awarded a penalty that Griezmann didn’t miss.

5. Then another penalty, this time Jedinak off a gift from Umtiti

If anyone can figure out what on earth Samuel Umtiti was thinking when he stuck his arm in the air on that Australia free kick, please speak up, because man was that incredibly stupid. What wasn’t stupid was Mile Jedinak’s finish of his penalty, which he struck with immense authority to level the score for Australia against France.

The 2018 World Cup was one of the most exciting in a long, long time, and it was chalk-full of fantastic goals . And wow, what an audacious moment for Kylian Mbappe. It was the 19 year old’s second goal of the day and a scintillating display of his skillset — the run, the positioning, the finish, everything.

The 2015 FIFA U-17 World Cup was the sixteenth tournament of the FIFA U-17 World Cup , held in Chile from 17 October to 8 November 2015. The following four countries bid to host the tournament: Chile. Russia. Tunisia. Wales.

4. Pogba’s gorgeous, unfortunately deflection-assisted, winner

That tied score wouldn’t last, though, thanks to Paul Pogba. It looked at first to be an incredible strike before replays showed it to have deflected off a defender en route to goal, but Pogba’s run and the overall quality of the buildup still deserve significant plaudits, especially coming as a vital late winner against a very game Australia side.

3. Finnbogason scores Iceland’s first goal ever

This isn’t the prettiest strike of the list, but it gets extra points for being historic: Alfreð Finnbogason scored the first-ever World Cup goal in the history of the Iceland national team. It ultimately won his team their first-ever point in the World Cup as well. That it was a well-taken volley off a rebounded save despite feeling the pressure coming behind him will just make it all the easier for Iceland fans to remember for a long, long time to come.

2. Poulson made no mistakes to beat Peru

This was the one truly great scoring chance Denmark had, almost an hour into a match that Peru had seen all the attacking opportunities in. But unlike Peru’s attackers, Yussuf Poulsen was able to get his finish right, making a nice run and handily beating the keeper with his shot, putting his team ahead and scoring what proved to be a crucial winner for Denmark as they look to progress from a tough group.

1. Aguero makes one turn and drops jaws

There have been some great goals scored already in the World Cup, and this Sergio Aguero strike can definitely be counted among them. The degree of difficulty here is incredibly high. He’s taking a fast-paced ball in, having to quickly make space from a defender sitting right on his hip; and then while moving away from the goal, Aguero turns and scoops a shot all in one motion while not fully balanced He still hits and absolute laser of a shot into the back of the net. It was an incredible strike, though one now largely overshadowed by Lionel Messi’s struggles later in the match.
