The term “Golden Goal” means that if either team scores a goal in extra time, the game ends immediately and the scoring team becomes the winner.

The “Golden Goal” Rule was used in two editions of the FIFA World Cup- 1998 and 2002.

FIFA World Cup’s golden goals include;

-Laurent Blanc’s golden goal for France against Paraguay in the 113th minute of the 1998 Round of 16.

-Ahn Jung-hwan’s golden goal for South Korea against Italy in the 117th minute of the 2002 World Cup round of 16.

-Henri Camara’s golden goal for Senegal against Sweden in the 104th minute of the 2002 World Cup round of 16.

-İlhan Mansız’s golden goal for Turkey against Senegal in the 94th minute of the 2002 World Cup quarter-finals.

Too many matches ended in penalty shoot-outs, so FIFA introduced the “Golden Goal” rule to encourage teams to attack in extra time.

However, it had the opposite effect, as many teams chose to defend in extra time and take their chance in a penalty shootout- and it was finally abolished in 2004.
