There were plenty of highlights, as well as some lowlights, but users of social and media aggregator site Reddit have had their say on the top moments from this year’s World Cup in Russia.

Based on the site’s “upvote” system, user Simranjit16 compiled a video of highlights that users of the site’s r/soccer subreddit voted as the most memorable of the tournament.

The compilation, which is made up of 10goals from the tournament – meaning there was no place for any of Neymar’s diving on the list – garnered 303,700 upvotes on the site.

It seems Reddit users allowed some sentiment to creep into their voting, though, with some rather unlikely entries on the list.

However, the usual suspects – Belgium’s incredible last-gasp winner against Japan, Cristiano Ronaldo’s breathtaking, hat-trick completing free-kick against Spain and Toni Kroos’ wonder strike against Sweden – are all included among the 10. But you’ll have to check the video yourself below to find out where they ranked.

The official goal of the World Cup will be announced by Fifa on Monday, July 23.
