Best Answer

A goal scored is worth one point. Unlike some other sports (football, Basketball, etc), there is only one method of scoring in a soccer match. These points should not be confused with the points used in league or tournament standings, usually 3 points given for a won match, 1 point for a drawn match, or none for a lost match. Goals/points scored often have significance outside of the match in which they are scored, such as a tiebreaker between two teams with otherwise-identical standings.
