Today's B/R Viral Video of the Day is exactly what it sounds like: All 60 goals (so far) of Euro 2012, all in one place.
Here's a sincere shoutout to Business Insider, whoever or whatever that is, for compiling this video, and to The Score for posting it. We're all very thankful.
Now, let's recap a little.
Poland's Robert Lewandowski scored the tournament's first goal against Greece on June 8. Sweden's Sebastian Larsson scored the final goal of the group stage Tuesday against France.
In between there were 58 more, some world-class, some ho-hum. In all, 60 goals have flown into nets around Poland and Ukraine in 24 matches so far, an average of 2.5 per match.
Germany's Mario Gomez, Croatia's Mario Mandzukic and Russia's Alan Dzagoev lead individual scorers with three strikes each. Only Gomez is still playing, so he's a good bet for top scorer, but Portugal superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is lurking with two goals.
Several goals are worthy of consideration for the best of the tournament so far. Which one do you prefer?
There's Jakub Blaszczykowski's curler for Poland against Russia, or Roman Pavlyuchenko's piledriver for Russia against the Czech Republic.
Then there are Danny Welbeck's backheel, Zlatan Ibrahimovic's acrobatic volley, David Silva's pullback and pass-shot and Andrea Pirlo's free kick.
And don't forget Rafa van der Vaart's curling beauty and Mario Balotelli's brilliant over-the-shoulder volley.
In other words, Euro 2012 has already seen a bunch of great goals.
The knockout stage promises to bring even more.
