This was an extraordinary achievement that gave rise to the concept of Olympic goal.

An incredible kind of goal is born

Onzari's goal, which came in the 15th minute of the match, was a result of a new technique that he had been practicing in training. Explore the 1xBet live score on website, which is also useful to choose how to make your next wagers.

Instead of crossing the ball into the box for a teammate to head in, he aimed the ball directly at the goal, using the wind to his advantage. The goalkeeper, who was not expecting the shot, was caught off guard and was unable to stop the ball from going into the net. The live scores on the 1xBet website will also let you know if another player scored a goal of this kind.

This gave rise to the concept of Olympic goal. The reason it was called like that was because at the time the Uruguayans, who suffered that goal, were the Olympic champions.
