Thats the one I was about to post
Great minds thnk alike.
I remember Stoichkov scoring an absolute screamer of a free kick from 40 yards out at USA 94 but it was disallowed for some reason.
Legendary Turkish striker Oktay Derelioğlu was the scorer against Belgium on 30.04.1997.
note almost scored
I remember pele a shot from half line and just over the bar in the WC 1970 couldnt find a vid though.
sorry for all. i apologize. i request that post to be deleted by mods. really sorry, my mistake.
Just copy it in the "great goals" thread if it exists.
I thought of Pele, and this.
Pelé in 1970 'scored' a hattrick of fabulous 'almost-goals':
Against Czchekoslovakia, the famous one, from (before) the middle of the field:
(cf. min. 00:22-00:40)
Then the mithic header saved by Banks:
Last but not least the dummy you refer to against Uruguay:
That's what 'should' have happened:
In that same game there is still his incredible return of a free kick by Uruguayan goalie Mazurckiewicz.
(I'll bring that clip up in a minute)
On the opening day of the 1975/76 season, Reading's Tommy Youlden curled a 30 yard free-kick into the side netting.
With everyone running out for the goal kick, the referee that day decided that absolutely everyone had got it wrong, and actually the ball had gone in for a goal. The Rochdale players and fans were none too pleased, but the Reading players suppressed their laughted and accepted the goal.
So there you have it - an example that it totally true to the thread title - the only good effort on goal that missed, that was actually a goal.
I agree with you all...Bet on these
Until today, I never saw the play and only read about this miss. I read many years ago that Maradona learned his lesson from this miss and decided to round the Peter Shilton in 1986 before shooting.

Still one of my favorites. Hans-Günter Bruns (Borussia Mönchengladbach) in a 1983 Bundesliga game at Bayern Munich:
The young fenomenon ...
Higuain should have put Real Madrid through tpo the QF. The miss starts at 26th secs.

This will probably go down as one of the greatest goals never scored, from the 1:15 mark, Ronaldo fakes 3 defenders and the keeper in such a tight space.... INCREDIBLE!!! But no goal.
Izaghi´s miss after Baggio´s run...

Was looking for Pele´s shot from behind the midfield line against Czechoslovakia in 1970 but couldn´t find it.
[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ynxuefMHb3U"]YouTube- BRAZIL - USSR 1 ROUND WORLD CUP 1958[/ame]
Look for 00:10 to 00:19.
The play that astonished world football at the 2nd minute of that game & ended up with favorites USSR hopes right at the start of the game.
Even if the ball didn't hit the net but the post.
Sorry, but that's waaay more skill, speed & explosion than the best Ronaldo.
Clip below starts with it.
Brings also two of his other 3 masterpieces that didn't hit the net in the Cup: the header against Banks & the dummy on Mazurkiewicz.
The 4th one was the instantaneous response to Mazurkiewicz kick ('tiro de meta') in the 2nd half of the Brazil 3 x 1 Uruguay semifinal game.
IMO those 4 are among the 10 greatest almost-goals ever.
All in one Cup.
And then 'they' come to talk of Maradona as the best WC performer ever.

Looks to me like Gregoriak's is the leader. Never seen that before. Has anyone ever done more in one passage of play to deserve a goal? Remarkable.
Someone might have posted here before. I am not familiar with the rules. It looked legal to me.
