The best top 10 international goal scorers and some great video
footage of just a few of their massive amount of goals scored
in international play. This black and white photo is of the greatest,
Josef “Pipi” Bican, back in the 1930’s he was the Pele/Messi
of football. Great goal scorers know, no matter how the ball gets
in the back of the net or how fast it gets there, it’s still worth only one point, not two points for being really fast or really fancy, just one point.
Efficiency, angle, and touch are the three things that a goal scorer thinks about. The ball only has to
travel completely over the line not have to rip the net from the goal posts. That’s the difference between
a goal scorer and a flash in the pan fad player who scores one goal and misses 100 others.
Consistency and awareness of the moment is the difference between these two players and the
realization most of the time it’s just passing the ball to the back of the net, a quick flick of the
foot to play keep away in a six yard area. It doesn’t have to be fancy to win a game, funny thing
about it, the simpler the harder it is to do in the heat of a split second, that’s the difference between great goal scorer and just another miss.
