Introducing a brand new segment to the Playing for 90 universe.  Okay, it’s not brand new. It’s been done before, over and over again.  Goal compilation videos.  Top 5 Goals from respective leagues around the world are nothing new.  But never have we ever seen top 5 goals from the world’s leagues combined. Clever, ain’t it?

  • If everything goes according to plan, we’ll be bringing you our top 5 goals of the week from around the world.  And while many of these will be the most readily accessible kinds of videos such as Major League Soccer’s website and Bundesliga TV (who post goal videos and highlights regularly), nothing is off-limits.  Barclays Premier League, Liga MX, Hyundai A-League, International Competition, anything goes.  That being said, here we go: the inaugural “Playing For 90 Top 5 Goals of The Week”.  Enjoy, and if you think you saw a goal that beats one of ours, be sure to let us know.

    If all goes as planned, these videos will be done once a week, most typically on Mondays.  Most goals will be posted as individual articles as well, so be on the lookout for Goal of the Week candidates as well, and if you see something worthy of making the top five, do not hesitate to send that video, vine, or gif our way.  With a small staff, accidentally overlooking greatness can be all too real a possibility especially with so many great leagues around the world proving such fantastic goals.  So tweet at @PlayingFor90 or use the hashtag #PF90TOP5 to get us the goals most deserving of high praise.
