Olympic Men's Soccer 2012: Top 3 Goals from the Opening Round of Matches
The opening round of matches resulted in only half of the teams in these finals keeping a clean sheet, which means one thing.
Some results have shocked, some goals have been tap-ins, but all we are concerned with here are those that have made you sit back and go wow.
So sit back, and watch the top three goals of the opening round of matches.
Morocco were charged with opening the tournament with a game against Honduras at Hampden Park.
It was a match that was not fancied by many, but has provided two of the goals featured on this list.
First up is Abdelaziz Barrada who fired the first goals of the 2012 London Games football tournament, with a thunderbolt.
Receiving the knockdown from outside the box, he rifled the ball past Jose Mendoza before he knew what had happened to put his side up 1-0.
It was then up to one of his teammates to rescue the draw in the second half in sublime fashion.
After going 1-0 courtesy of Barrada's stunning volley, it was left to Zakaria Labyad to pull his side level with a moment of pure class.
Receiving a pass from Barrada, who was at the centre of the action, Labyad found himself just inside the box in a little bit of space.
Spotting the keeper a little off his line, the Sporting Lisbon youngster clipped the ball over him and into the back of the net.
With one shock already having ensued slightly earlier in the day with Japan beating Spain, it looked like Uruguay could follow suit.
One goal down to the largely unfancied United Arab Emirates, when Omar Abdulrahman carved them apart with a stunning pass for Ismaeil Matar to finish, it was hard to see where the South Americans were going to get a goal from.
Even with a largely star-studded lineup.
Just before halftime, however, one those stars, Luis Suarez was felled, and another in the shape of Gaston Ramirez stepped up to take the free kick.
The 25-yard distance meant little, and the Bologna winger whipped it over the wall and into the top corner.
