The World Cup so far has had some memorable moments through the first game of group play. There have been phenomenal goals off set pieces, great goalkeeping (along with some bad goalkeeping) and some firecrackers that have scorched the back of the net.
Nacho Fires The Laser!
Spain’s Nacho hit this ripper of a shot against Portugal in an exciting first game. It was a hell of a shot that ricocheted off the post and into the net. An absolutely beauty.
This Nacho goal is so much better with Andres Cantor on the call. #PortugalvSpain https://t.co/8avePung8H
Cristiano Ronaldo Doing Cristiano Ronaldo Things
Ronaldo went for the hat-trick against Spain and this set-piece special from the Portugal striker was masterful.
Cristiano Ronaldo with hat trick in the opening match. This free kick is just unfair! WOW. WOW. WOW. #PORESP https://t.co/HFDjgXhNVb
Aleksander Kolarov Hits It Upper 90
Serbia’s Kolarov with a brilliant goal off the set piece against Costa Rica.
WHAT. A. GOAL! How do you get past Navas? Put it in the upper 90 like Kolarov! https://t.co/k6zSeI3r61
Memo Ochoa Is The Only Wall We Recognize
Mexico’s goalkeeper Memo Ochoa continues to be a staple for “El Tri.” His performance in their first-match upset of Germany was absolutely crucial.
Ochoa came up big time and time again for Mexico. His save on the Kroos free kick is our save of the day! https://t.co/qUvGLR9eU8
Dries Mertens off the volley
Belgium’s first match against Panama was a piece of cake, but this goal by Dries Mertens off the volley was anything but.
Dries Mertens hits this so fresh and so clean off the volley! WOW! https://t.co/rkuq8fClTb
Well that was fun. We’ll keep updating this list as the tournament goes on!
