Best goals

Richarlison’s volley against Serbia

After first mis-controlling a pass from Vinicius Jr, the Brazil and Tottenham striker readjusted to brilliantly take the aerial route and fire in an acrobatic right-foot finish.

A Brazil team move & Richarlison’s juggling against South Korea

In a stunning Selecao team move, Richarlison controlled the ball three times with his head and foot before getting into position to take Thiago Silva’s pass in his stride and finish.

Kylian Mbappe’s second goal against Poland

Having hit an impressive first goal, Mbappe claimed his second with a brilliant curling effort late on for his fifth overall at the tournament.

A clever free-kick and Weghorst’s finish against Argentina

It is the 11th and final minute of stoppage of time. Your team is 2-1 down and you have a free-kick in a dangerous position just outside the box, so what do you do? Have a crack at goal or send in a cross and hope for the best? Or produce the bit of genius the Netherlands did against Argentina?

Teun Koopmeiners looked for all the world like he was going to shoot but tricked the defence by slipping the ball to Wout Weghorst, who turned and rolled home.

Vincent Aboubakar’s scooped finish against Serbia

There were shades of Karel Poborsky and Euro 96 as Cameroon striker Aboubakar raced through on goal and then expertly scooped the ball over Serbia’s helpless goalkeeper Vanja Milinkovic-Savic.

Chavez hits thunderbolt against Saudi Arabia

It wasn’t enough to keep Mexico in the World Cup, but Luis Chavez’s fierce free-kick against Saudi Arabia gave their fans a magical moment to celebrate. Clocking in it at 75mph, it was the most powerfully-struck goal of the group stage and a shot no-one was keeping out.

Marcus Rashford’s free-kick against Wales

With England struggling to break the deadlock against Wales, Rashford took aim and fired the Three Lions in front with a magnificent free-kick into the top corner.

Ramos’ stunner on way to Portugal hat-trick

When you come in for Cristiano Ronaldo, you are going to want to make sure you make an impression and Goncalo Ramos certainly did that in his side’s 6-1 win against Switzerland.

Not only did he score a hat-trick, but his first was an absolute beauty, driving in at the near post from a tight angle.

Memphis Depay finishes off 20-pass Dutch move

Total football from the Netherlands, who played out from defence before Depay applied the deadly finish that their 20-pass move deserved against the USA.

Gavi’s brilliant volley against Costa Rica

Spain midfielder Gavi, 18, announced himself on the global stage with a brilliant volley as he became the youngest goalscorer at a World Cup since a 17-year-old Pele in 1958.
