    Oh my God. 1 of the greatest goals ever.

    That was sweet. Even better is that it was from a guy from Nepal… my friend just got back from doing habitat for humanity there… no running water, horrific pollution, recent civil war, average annual income of ~$500…

  3. K Bone says:

    I’m really not trying to be that guy, but why the hell was the goalie off his line that much on a free kick that far out? I assume he was trying to anticipate a cross, but why would you do that from that free kick position? If he had stayed on his line it would have been an easy save in my opinion…

    I’m with you. Well struck ball, but it was in the air for DAYS. Keeper badly misjudged it.

  5. Hm says:

    sooooo better or worse than life in New Jersey?

  6. aj says:

    not really clear to me if that was a shot or a wayward cross. it if was a shot, well done.

  7. Adam says:

    I agree. Nice placement on the shot, but horrible goal keeping.

  8. TomG says:

    yeah – great goal, but shambolic goaltending.

    Viva Nepal! Golden Child reference

  11. Kenny_B says:

    I don’t think it was a shot at all. It looks like an overhit cross to me. It was poor goal keeping for sure.

  12. soccerhorn says:

    I thought that keeper was going to just keep running for the exit.

    Indians are Wankers. Go Nepal.

  14. leftcoastmetro says:

    Yeah, I swear I’m a first time caller as “that guy” too, but the ball had 3 seconds of airtime… no goalie (even rec league goalies) should be allowed to let that in. No denying it was a great shot, tough.

  15. REALCoach says:

    Even the best GK’s in the world make huge blunders. Judging a ball from that far a distance isn’t the easiest thing to do.

    His fundamentals at least on that play was horrible (ie. should have opened up his body and tried to palm it away using his left hand).

  16. Brian Abernethy says:

    to be honest, Ives, that’s just really terrible goalkeeping. It’s basic technique to wait and come onto the ball to clear it, this guy decides to come flying out and paid the price. Certainly not a “must-see goal”

  17. Patrick Bateman says:

    No one is going to comment on the backing music??

  18. Robin says:

    Screw Nepal, the England of South Asia. Always overrating each other then messing up

  19. robin_of_nepal says:

    Screw India. We will win the cup by beating you in your stadium. Go Nepal! No one can beat us.

  21. Robin says:

  22. subrat says:
