How did the goals of U.S foreign policy in Europe compare to the goals of soviet foreign policy after world war 2?
Germany's goals in World War I were to isolate their long rival France and remove it from the playing field in Europe. The German government wanted to secure and maintain the unification in Germany uniting all the German speaking nations into greater seat of power in Europe.

As for world records, this is what I have found: Edson Arantes do Nascimento (Pelé) has a total of 1279 goals. Lionel Messi has the most goals in a year (2012), at 91. If you are only worried about Major League Soccer, here are the records there: Landon Donovan, with a total of 143 goals as of September 2014.

Over the centuries, European countries had become master of all the major trade routes and of all major world trade, were masters of the richest Asian countries like Indonesia and India and had made themselves 'protectors' of most of Africa. Other advantages were that Europe - together with the US - was…
Unity was brought mainly by the decades-long process of setting up and expanding the European Union in the aftermath of WW 2; also the disappearance of the Iron Curtain in 1989 was a major factor in uniting Europe. Major disruptive factors were of course the two World Wars, and before 1989, the existence of a Communist-dominated Eastern Europe versus Western Europe.
