Cup, not league...therefore not meaningless...I guess the goal should have been scored by C. Ronaldo or an english player in the EPL in order to receive the appropriate praise...oh dear
sorry my mistake. but the point remains that while a great goal it is its getafe theyre not exactly amazing. at least when giggs did it it was against one of the best teams in the world playing great football with and incredible defence and keeper. not with no disrespect to getafe fans a mid table la liga side. cup or not i dont think anyone would have bet on getafe to win that match would they?
For me this will be the goal of the decade, at least. I have to disagree with the user who said that this might be the goal of the month, you practically see very nice long-range shot goals from time to time, but you rarely (and I mean very rarely) see a solo run like Messi's.
PURE MAGIC, nothing more...

Totally agree with any of these comments...
Plus, I'd prefer Messi's goal, to a 30 yard unstoppable screamer any day.
Whatta beauty of a goal... that one is not for the talented... is for the BLESSED!!!
Wow, an orgasmic goal, nothing else to say about it...A magical run just like Diego's, and what is even more shocking is after he scores he falls to the ground just like Maradona did and runs just like him to celebrate to the right corner...For me this will be the goal of the decade, at least.

I favour Zlatan's more actually because he did it all barely moving. Its much harder to defend against players that are running full speed, rather than walking with the ball and even though Zlatan didn't run half the field, he used purely skill to get past players, unlike Messi who used speed as well. Nevertheless, like i said, this is the goal of the season.
