Vote: Top 15 Goals of the Week (Ft. Lewandowski, Altidore, Yaya Toure, Messi & Ronaldo)
- April 30, 2013
It has been an excellent week for Golazos – so much so that we had to go with 15 instead of our usual 10.
We kick off with a wonder woman’s goal followed by the player on everyone’s lips and then a real cracking free-kick from Jozy Altidore.
In 4 we have Chelsea starlet Nathaniel Chalobah scoring one of the goals of the season, followed by a Yaya Toure cracker and then a trademark Lionel Messi wonder goal.
Nuri Sahin shows he is coming back to form at Dortmund with a long range stunner at 7 and goal eight is one of the finest solo specials we have seen all season.
In position 9, and arguably favourite for this week’s winner, is Ronaldo turning back the clock in a Maracana exhibition match before we get to six goals you probably won’t have seen but all are worth a watch.
Nicola Cosentini claims a howitzer of a volley. Huseyin Akoglu impudently knocks home a scorpion kick. Kennedy Igboananike may have scored the best overhead kick of the season.
And, Elsad Zverotic picks out the top corner in style. Thiago Neves puts his slippers on for a perfect chip. And finally, Hugo Bargas scored an overhead kick from the edge of the box.
