The bottom line is that Mexes and Ibrahimovic have scored two of the best overhead kicks ever seen, which should be reason enough for you all to celebrate this list.

No doubt there will be plenty of disagreement, so feel free to slate/criticise/congratulate us in the comments below.

Above all, enjoy these goals. They live on through the ages! Please note the list below is in chronological order.

(When we asked our Twitter followers which goals had to be included in this list, two were suggested, amongst many, that you probably haven’t seen: Widodo C Putro (Indonesia) v Kuwait, 1996Sibusiso Zuma (FC København) v Brøndby IF, 2001.)
