Compilation Of Goals Recorded By Fans Shows How Much Football Misses Them
A compilation of some of the most iconic goals of the last few years from fan cameras reminds us how much we're missing fans in stadiums.
Football fans are very grateful that the sport has been able to continue in the past seven months or so, since the sport returned last year after the break because of Covid-19.
There's been some memorable moments and excellent games during the behind closed doors games but, as we keep getting reminded by commentators and presenters, it's not quite the same without fans.
Nothing encapsulates that more than the lack of a crowd going crazy at a brilliant goal or a late winner.
This compilation has plenty of both of those, with Sergio Aguero's Premier League winning goal, Divock Origi's comeback securing goal vs Barcelona and James Rodriguez' Puskas Award winner amongst them.
Goals, and the amount scored, have been a hot topic recently, with both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo breaking long standing records.
The Barcelona star broke Pele's record for the most goals at one club at the end of last year. The six time Ballon d'Or winner scored his 644th goal for the club in the win against Real Vallecano.

Pele was one of the men claiming to have stopped Ronaldo too, when the Juventus striker became the leading goalscorer of all time.
The former Real Madrid ace bagged his 760th career goal, for club and country, when he scored in the Old Lady's Supercoppa win over Napoli.
However both Pele and Romario claim to have scored over 1000 goals in their careers and they weren't the only ones saying the 35-year-old still needed to score more.
Josef Bican, whose record Ronaldo took, may have actually scored more. The Czech FA claimed their former striker scored 821 goals during his time, leaving Ronaldo still 62 goals short.
