    Foot.ie decides - Ireland's best goal!

    So - let's get underway!

    A recap of the rules first. 88 goals to go through (let's say it's symbolic of our first finals) - so 8 groups of 6 and 8 groups of 5, with the top 2 going through to the last 32.

    You can vote for one goal, all goals or somewhere in between. If you're voting for multiple goals, put in an order (1, 2, 3, etc). If you don't, I'll assume the order in your post is your order of preference. It's 6 points for a first preference, 5 for a second preference, 1 for a sixth preference, and 0 for no vote. In the event of a tie, I'll put in a casting vote.

    Voting will be open for 24 hours. I'll post Group A now, Group B about 6pm this evening (at which time both Groups A and B will be open for voting), Group C tomorrow morning (at which time I'll announce the winner of Group A), etc.

    The groups are roughly seeded just to avoid all the classics ending up in the one group. I've then listed the groups in alphabetical order of the opposition so as not to bias towards the "seeds". Still some tough decisions to be made though!

    Some of the links are just the goal; others are of the whole highlights. I don't think you can embed a YouTube video to start at a set time (let me know if you can though!), so I'll list the time to jump to for those. I think you can put in a link that starts at the correct time, so I'll add that as well. If there's any better links for any of the goals (especially if it's the goal on its own), let me know and I'll use it if the goal progresses.

    I think that's everything so. Let's see how it goes. Group A coming right up!

    Group A

    We kick off with one of our newer groups - average year is 2007. Two of these to progress; four to go back to the archives. There's a one video per post limit - so I've to put up six different posts. Bear with me!

    The group is -
    1) Robbie Brady A v Bosnia, 2015
    2) John O'Shea A v Germany, 2014
    3) Glenn Whelan H v Italy, 2009
    4) Kevin Doyle A v Slovakia, 2007
    5) Liam Miller H v Sweden, 2006
    6) Niall Quinn A v Wales, 1991

    Is the best goal you ever saw the best goal you never saw? (Time is 8:53, or time-stamped link is here)

    A last-minute equaliser away to the world champions is always fun - but is it any good? (Time is 10:09 - time-stamped link is here)

    A Whelan rocket from outside the box is probably one of the favourites to win the tournament - but is it this one?

    I was right behind the goal for this one; can definitely testify that it deserves its nomination!

    The late Liam Miller's first goal for Ireland got Stan's Ireland career off to a great start... (Time is 2:25 - time-stamped link is here)

    An outsider maybe, but try scoring this goal on what is effectively ice. (Time is 0:34 - time-stamped link is here)

    No poll tets - post your votes in thread.

    The next group will follow in the same thread at 6pm (ish) - so the poll option will just get confused.

    Eirambler has the idea - no need to vote for all six if you don't want to, but obviously you can if you want as well.

    Another group coming in an hour or so - but Group A will remain open, so do keep voting!

    Maybe from the knock-out rounds, might introduce a rule of a reason for your vote. Just to get a bit of chat going and make it feel less like a céilí in here

    I think it's a tight battle between Miller and Whelan for the second place at the moment?

    Not exactly the best of goals - but can you really have an Irish list without it?
