Absurd Goals, or Pressing Offense and Bad Defense? All 3.

My favorite is number four (the second on the video) when the ball bounces from one post the other post before going in. Mathematically I know that it is as likely as any other angle of deflection, but I have a lot of soccer experience and have never seen (nor heard of) such a result. Each of the five goals is enjoyable.

On defense, we see goalkeeping errors, and panicked clears that don't clear. Solution? Well, to start with, don't panic. Moving very quickly and moving at a panic pace look equally fast, but panic is a player's mind out of control. Fear is for non-soccer activities.
