"Goals follow goals” is a soccer adage. There might be a long stretch without any scoring, but after a goal is scored, another one often follows soon after.
“Goals follow goals” has been cited in print since at least 2009. “But the old soccer adage ‘goals follow goals’ was in play on this day” was cited in 2011.
