    BTW, for those who don't know, this means that a goal was/is scored directly from a corner kick.  This term was added to the soccer lexicon when a goal was scored directly from aCK during an Olympic game match (sadly, I don't remember which Olympic Game this took place) and as many of you futbol soccer cognoscenti know, it happens iether by design or not, when the kicker plans to curve the ball towards the goal to hopefully to a team mate who would headed or kick the ball into goal. In some occasions, a player will actually put enough spin on the ball for it to curve into goal, thus a "Gol Olimpico..."  PLAY ON!!!
