Best goals in world cup 2014 group stages

So the group stage is over and we had 117 goals in 48 matches played in the competition so far, here is the look back at 8 of the best goals in the group stages and Lionel Messi and Holland has scored some peach of goals already.

Robin Van Persie Goal vs Spain

Van Pesie’s famous goal against Spain paved the way back in the game for Holland, This airborn effort from Van Persie went viral immediatly after the goal was scored and It might end up the best goal in the competition overall.

Arjen Robben Goal vs Spain

Robben missed couple of sitters against Iker Casillas four years ago in the final of 2010 world cup and but he was not going to make any mistake this time around as he almost humiliated Casillas before poking hom with a powerful left foot.


Lionel Messi Goal vs Bosnia & Herzegovina

Argetina did not play the best of football in the group stages and on all three occassions Messi provided some spark to open the scoring and his goal against Bosnia has to be one of the best in the world cup so far.

Tim Cahill Goal vs Holland

Cahill’s effort immedialty after Holland scored was as good as you are going to get in the world cup this year, A left footed volley on a 40 yarder long ball is stuff of dreams.

Jermaine Jones Goal vs Portugal

USA came from 1-0 down to take the lead against Portugal with a classic drive from outside the box from Jermaine Jones. Unfortunately for USA portugal scored a very late goal to make it 2-2

Lionel Messi Goal vs Iran

We were on our way to be biggest upset in the recent world cup histy as Iran hold out Argentina to a 0-0 draw in 90 minutes but Lionel Messi broke Iranian hearts with a trademark goal in the injury time.

James Rodriguez goal vs Japan

Colombia are the surprise package of this world cup, nobody gave them a chance after Rademel Falcao failed to make full recovery from injury and missed out on world cup but boy they prove everyone wrong with a impressive team effort.

Memphis Depay Goal vs Chile

A classic dutch counter against Chile lead to a first goal for very promising youngster Memphis Depay who poked a tap in from Arjan Robbens good cross after electric counter attack.

What you think which goal is the best from the group stages of this world cup ? For me the best one is Van Persie Goal and skill vise its Tim Cahill. I would love to hear your views on this.

    Cahil’s goal is the best. The timing and accuracy were perfect. Van Persie’s goal should never took place if Casillas didn’t misjudge the timing.

    • jordy

      Yeah but Van Persie headed it lime that because he saw Casillas out if his net.

  • Jemy

    Cahil’s goal is the best. The timing and accuracy were so perfect. Van Persie’s goal would never take place if Casillas didn’t leave the net. In that case, Van Persie’s header will be blocked by the goal keeper.
