Direct Corner Kicks = Olympic Goals

Olympic goals are corner kicks that score without being touched. Normally they are defensible. In the video, of the 10 olympic goals, only the one by Baggio, the great Italian scoring machine, could have been stopped. On several, the defense did not have a person on the near post. Just this kind of play is why a person should be there. On 6 of the goals, the keeper was too far forward by about a step in his initial placement. On Baggio's, just bow down, since it amazingly goes over the head of the man guarding the front post.
