During the global coronavirus lockdown, we really missed football! So while we waited for its glorious return, we did something special for all the depressed football fans out there! Together we went through a ton of goals across 4 SociaLiga Seasons to crown one perfect goal as the “Greatest SociaLiga Goal” ever scored!

Season One
Season One was a tough battle with some truly spectacular goals.
Solo Messi-esque runs!


Golazos and perfect free kicks!

But the SociaLiga fans overwhelmingly voted for elegance over show with Nuel’s chip taking the crown as the “Best Goal in Season One”

Season Two

Season Two also provided its fair share of thrilling finishes and excellent goals. Like this chip from Shahin Benzema of The Raineri FC against The All Black FC

and this powerful free kick by Gabriel of The Knight FC against The Guns

Ultimately Patrick’s incredible solo effort took the crown as the “Best Goal in Season Two”

Season Three
Season three was the season of upsets with surprise fan favourite Joshua Obakimi of Danna FC pulling off the upset of the Tournament so far winning with a wild 53% of the votes.

Over more technical goals like this fine finish by Citizens star Shabba (Martins)

Season 4

The theme of Season 4 nominees was insane screamers! Check out this goal from The Saints FC star Olayinka against Alimosho FC

or this perfect free kick by Goal of the Season winner The Royals FC Star Dadieh


After 32 goals, over a thousand votes cast and a month of campaigning, we finally arrived at the SociaLiga Battle of Goals grand finale! Season 1 winner Nuel faced off against Season 2 Champion Patrick of The Raineri FC for the ultimate prize!

It came down to the wire. With 2 hours to go and hundreds of votes cast, our two contestants for Best Goal in SL History were tied at 50%. Patrick’s sweet curler had serious momentum

But then Nostalgia FC struck. With a tight 50.5% of the votes, our Season 1 Goal of the Season, former The Royals FC superstar Nuel’s (@_Nuel88) chip against The Saints FC triumphed as the “Best Goal in SociaLiga history”. Only fitting that the fan voted Best striker in SL History would score the Best Goal in SL History!

Congratulations Nuel!
