Best Soccer Goals of the Day: June 18, 2010

In what was certainly an instant classic for US soccer, we have two goals from one game that made our best list. The first was a deep strike from Valter Brisa to give Slovenia a 1:0 lead over the United States, the second was a powerful blast from a tough angle by Landon Donovan, to bring the game within reach at 2:1.

We have never included a penalty kick in our best soccer goal of the day list before, but this one is a truly worthy first. Despite what looked like perfect goalkeeping by France’s Hugo Lloris, Cuauhtémoc Blanco’s scored on a penalty shot that could only be described as undefendable.

Yesterday’s best soccer goal comes from Uruguay’s top player, Diego Forlan. Forlan broke open what was a 0:0 tie at that point, with a shot from well beyond the box. This began what would eventually be a sound 3:0 beating.
