Top Definition
A soccer term describing one of three events:

1. A team scores a goal it doesn't deserve.

2. A team scores a goal in the literal last minute of the game.

3. A team scores a goal and has it disqualified for absolutely no reason.

Can also be used to describe achievements outside of soccer. Based on the USA team's 2010 World Cup performance.
Example:
Ghana could not score the American goal with a penalty kick during overtime, and lost the match to Uruguay in the penalty shoot out.

Example:
Bill: That new supervisor is an idiot. How'd he get this job?

Ted: He's the boss's son.

Bill: Way to score an American goal.
