What is sudden death in soccer?

Death from above!

Same as golden goal. The next goal scored results in that team winning and the game being over.

Some lesser tournaments have ties that go into extra time and whatever team scores the first goal wins. The winning goal is called a golden goal and the match is over.

It is when two teams tie during a significant soccer match in a tournament and a winner HAS to be decided. It just means the first team to score in this period wins the match. Usually followed by PK's.
