The 2014 World Cup has produced several goals of outstanding quality.After a bit of head tennis on the edge of the Uruguayan box midway through the first half, the ball arched toward Rodriguez, 25 meters out.Most players would have tried to take the ball down, but not Cahill, who smacked it first time with his left foot in off the crossbar, giving the Dutch goalkeeper no chance.The penalty area was packed with bodies – there were eight Iranian defenders between Messi and goal – but somehow he threaded the ball into the exposed corner of the net.Brazil were leading 1-0 in the 69th minute of their quarterfinal against Colombia when James Rodriguez tripped Brazilian striker Hulk 30 meters from goal in a central position.The odd thing about this goal is that Luiz side-footed his shot, and yet he hit it with such power and precision that it dipped and swerved before entering the net.
