    Default score, goal

    What do people shout at a football match, if someone scores a goal? Do they shout "score" or "goal" or something completely different?

    For example, in the Czech Rep., people shout "gól" (pronounced as /go:l/) and in Germany "Tor" /to:r/.
    I wonder if it is goal or score in English.

    By the way, what do you say (shout) in other languages?

    GOOOAL!!!!

    or Ya BEAUTY!!!

    OH NO! (If the goal is against your team )

    There may also be adjectival use of taboo words, if you get my drift...
