Goal!

Football - the art of putting a round ball into a rectangular hole.

The Fifa laws on football say: “Goals must be placed on the centre of each goal line. They consist of two upright posts… joined at the top by a horizontal crossbar. The distance between the posts is 7.32 m and the distance from the lower edge of the crossbar to the ground is 2.44m.” (Photographs and text: Christoph Balsiger, swissinfo)
