    You can watch and vote for the goal of the tournament here on FIFA's website.

    I think the best is James Rodriguez's goal against Uruguay, although his goal against Japan weren't bad either.

    I hadn't seen all of them before. Villa's cheeky backheel against Australia was good and Messi's goal against Bosnia and Hervegovina was quality too.

    Messi has two goals nominated and started a third.

    England feature once, on the end of an Italian goal.

    What was your favorite goal of the tournament?

    A toss up between Rodriguez vs Uraguay and Cahill vs Holland...
    Cahill just pips it for me.

    Van Persie's header for me. The technique, timing, and the way it changed the game.

    Considering the timing and the importance of the goal, it has to be Gotze.

    Schurrle's second against Brazil was pretty impressive, albeit against an already thrashed team.

    Batboy Trumpeting is good for you...

    This and I would add probably the greatest headed goal ever.

    Normally it's a kick that wins this. If you watch Van Persie he knows exactly what he is doing, he has sighted the positioning of the keeper, judged the flight of the ball and launched himself with a looping header perfectly placed into the net, no luck, no hit and hope, planned and used with the head and brain, it was genius, but Robben is still a diving cheating cunt.
