Now that is a goal!!!!!

The first _______ was scored by X in Scotland on 21 August 1924. ________remains a rare occurrence and most of the times is accomplished by fluke rather than intent. One of the most famous example of this type of goal was by Celtic's 1950s midfielder Charlie Tully. His first attempt was disallowed by the refree but he retook the attempt and scored again.
What are we talking about ???

PS: As we say, Googling is a moral crime...

Both champ and nihar got the funda right..

We are talking about OLYMPIC GOAL and it is hit directly from the corner...
