Settling on the term for the corner kick "Olympic" goal

By Simon Borg

They don't happen that often, but when they do we're often at a loss for words.

What are we supposed to call goals scored off of corner kicks?

In Spanish they have "gol olimpico" to describe it and depending on whom you speak to, English speakers use a variation of that "olympic" reference.

But it's never uniform and it's all over the place. Until now. The poll in this blog post will be the final arbiter.
