When a player scores directly from a corner kick without any other player touching the ball it's called an 'olympic goal'. And that's just what Beckham did for the LA Galaxy the other night versus the Chicago Fire.
It doesn't happen too often, and it's rare that the player is intentionally trying to score directly, usually they're trying to whip the ball in with pace and get a deflection. Which is just what Beckham did, bending the ball at pace, but this time the ball went right into the goal. Take a look.
