In association football, a goal is defined as follows: "A goal is scored when the whole of the ball passes over the goal line, between the goalposts and under the crossbar, provided that no infringement of the Laws of the Game has been committed previously by the team scoring the goal." If you are referring to the goal-posts, then the goal-posts are defined as follows: "A goal must be placed on the centre of each goal line. A goal consists of two upright posts equidistant from the corner flagposts and joined at the top by a horizontal crossbar. The goalposts and crossbar must be made of wood, metal or other approved material. They may be square, rectangular, round or elliptical in shape and must not be dangerous to players. The distance between the posts is 7.32 m (8 yds) and the distance from the lower edge of the crossbar to the ground is 2.44 m (8 ft). Both goalposts and the crossbar have the same width and depth, which do not exceed 12 cm (5 ins). The goal lines must be of the same width as the goalposts and the crossbar. Nets may be attached to the goals and the ground behind the goal, provided that they are properly supported and do not interfere with the goalkeeper. The goalposts and crossbars must be white." Both of these are quoted from the Laws of the Game.

When the result of a football match has to be determined, and the scores are tied after normal time, extra time is played. Extra time is usually two halfs, each lasting 15 minutes. Golden goal is a term used to basically mean first goal scored wins the match.

This is a modification to the FIFA Laws of the Game and is not used in FIFA sanctioned matches. FIFA overtimes are not golden goal.
