    It's good, it's creative with excellent moves, but she got lucky a couple of times. My favorite women's goal of all time was when Charmaine Hooper of the Atlanta Beat scored a winning goal in what I remember as a playoff game. It was awesome. Though, she probably didn't make the moves that Kumi made, it still resides in my heart as my favorite.

    Awesome... determined, relentless and then a cool low shot to the near post.

    Greatest women's goal ever? That's a huge statement to maker. I'm not so sure. But, I can tell you it's the poorest women's defense ever......

    Great moves in the field but an incredibly poor effort by the goalie. Maybe she was so entertained by the dribbling she forgot to actually move.

    Nice, but I still think Marta's second goal against the US in the last Women's World Cup was better.
