FIFA Now we’re kicking off a new series, Goals of the Month, that highlights the most impressive selections from the previous month’s goals. Instead of a ranked top ten list, we will award the best videos in a variety of categories, like best assist, best header, most creative, etc.
players around the world submit their best goals hoping to be selected for the EA SPORTS FIFA 18 Goals of the Week compilation. Even though there are thousands of excellent submissions every week, only ten of the very best make the cut.
Like I said above, there were many excellent uses of El Tornado this month, but the best of the best has to be this performance from FIFA 18 cover star Cristiano Ronaldo. After dominating multiple defenders to burst into the penalty box, Ronaldo uses FIFA’s newest skill move to bamboozle the final defender before scissor-kicking the ball into the upper corner of the goal.
This month’s goals featured some brilliant efforts, including a handful of stunning uses of El Tornado that made picking the top ones rather difficult. But here they are, the best goals of November 2017, with the name of the players who made them, the professionals they used, and where to find each in the video above.
Comparing technique-heavy highlights can be a tough ask. What should have more weight: the quantity of tricks and moves performed or their quality? Sometimes the simplest tricks produce brilliant combos, but it’s hard to discount when a player pulls off one of the more complex and difficult FIFA skill moves. In this month’s pick, Sterling uses his endless bag of tricks to beat four defenders before spinning into a cheeky backwards flick to finish past the hapless goalkeeper.
o many ways to score goals. Between the different tricks, flicks, and shot types, the possibilities for interesting and cheeky finishes are many. For this month’s most creatively cheeky goal, N’Zonzi fools just about everybody on a corner kick with his flying backheel finish that zipped across the goal and into the top of the net.
Another excellent team goal, the most impressive thing about this one is the mind-boggling finish. An imitation of Robin van Persie’s stunning header against Spain at the 2014 World Cup, this goal is more incredible with every re-watch. Some buildup play set up a lobbed through ball for Dybala, who could have done a variety of things with the ball when it got to him. But instead of settling it with his feet and dribbling or heading it down for a teammate, Dybala does the virtually unthinkable by leaping towards the ball from outside the box with an acrobatic diving header. His finish looped perfectly into the upper right corner as the frozen goalkeeper looked on in awe.
FIFA 18 Coins The best team goal this month had an assist nearly as good as the goal itself. Deulofeu takes the ball towards the six-yard box after latching onto a through ball on the left, and rather than take the shot himself or make a simple cross into the middle, he executes a flawless rabona cross towards the penalty spot. Asensio, not to be one-upped, whips the ball into the corner with an audacious scorpion kick.
