Who knew that "goal" in Arabic was still.... "GOOAALL"?

I had to watch at least 5 times to determine "Why was that goal Scored?".

In this video (first 15 seconds of Saudi VS. Japan) the main defender doesn't do a bad job, it's his buddy that just gets in the way and doesn't support. The second defender (upfield from the main defender on the ball) should have slipped goalside to defend the obvious open space.

Some goals are earned, and this WAS a nice finishing shot. But, hey, defend all space. When you are that close to the goal, defend every inch.
