There are few things that bring football fans more joy than seeing the ball hit the back of the net, or more devastation than when the opposition score against your side. Goals ultimately decide success and failure. At the FIFA World Cup™, these joys and sorrows are heightened ever still, magnified on the global stage.

In our new “Hyundai Anatomy of a Goal” series, we closely analyse some of the most memorable goals in World Cup history. Have fun watching!
