1. In football, to give the ball some welly from 40 yards out in the hope you will score a brilliant equaliser and be carried off the pitch by adoring team mates, rather than hit a defender or balloon hilariously over the bar, as you almost certainly will.

2. In a wider context, to refer to somebody having a jolly good go at something that they will inevitably fail at.
1. "We're into the 89th minute. Owen's got the ball, Geremi's to his left, and...oh dear."
"What can you say, Clive. The lad was going for glory."

2. "Did you see our Jeremy, chatting up that blonde bombshell?"
"Yeah. Got to give the lad credit, going for glory like that."
