With the 2018 FIFA World Cup days away now, let’s take a trip down memory lane! Reliving and counting down the top 10 goals from the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

10. Xherdan Shaqiri vs Honduras

 The Swiss and most likely former Stoke City Player scored an absolute belter against Honduras, shot from outside the box and into the top corner! absolute Beauty!

9. Lionel Messi vs Nigeria

Leo Messi’s Scintillating Free-kick against Nigeria was a clear indication of how good the magician was going to be in the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Perfectly Hit nothing the Keeper could do.

8. Lionel Messi vs Bosnia Herzegovina

Second consecutive entry with Leo Messi! The Argentina Captain was sensational in the group stage in 2014! A brilliant run, good back pass from Higuain, cut in and Messi slots it in the back of the net. Take a bow Leo. More in 2018. Please.

7. David Villa vs Australia

David Villa’s clever backheel goal off a Juanfran cross was definitely the highlight of Spain’s 2014 World Cup, A disappointing one for the Defending Champions.

6. Tim Cahill vs Netherlands

At number 6 we have now 38 years old Tim Cahill, this volley was hit with Absolute perfection. Can the former Everton man recreate some of that magic in Russia? 

5. David Luiz vs Columbia

The out of favour Chelsea Centre-back hit an absolute belter against Columbia in Quarterfinals of the Tournament. When Luiz gets a free kick right there is no Stopping him!

4. Mario Gotze vs Argentina

The biggest game of his career comes straight off the bench and goal! Mario Gotze’s ‘Super Sub’ goal sealed the World Cup for Germany! 

3. James Rodriguez vs Japan

The 2014 FIFA World Cup was a turning point in James Rodrigues’s Career and his Goal against Japan Certainly turned some heads!

2. Robin Van Persie vs Spain

Headers always seem to get fans excited and I don’t think we’ve seen a Header greater than this one! Take a bow, Robin Van Persie

1. James Rodriguez vs Uruguay

This beauty is not only the first on our list but also won the Puskas Award in 2014 for the Best Goal of the year. Received it on his chest, takes it on the turn and bam! easy as you like it. No wonder Real Madrid signed him up days after the World Cup.
