As many of you have noticed, we delayed our usual Monday afternoon slot for the top goals of the week until after the Euro 2012 group stages were complete.
So, below are the top 10 goals from the past nine days…
We kick off with the Polish captain and what was probably the highlight for the co-hosts at the tournament followed by a quality free-kick you won’t have seen.
In third is a free-kick you surely have seen from Italian master Andrea Pirlo, followed by a Cristiano Ronaldo-esque set-piece from the fourth division in Norway.
Next up is Danny Welbeck’s cheeky back heel, a fine long ranger from a member of the USWMNT and then VDV’s cracker which wasn’t enough for the Oranje.
Juninho bangs in another free-kick at goal eight before we get to two of the most iconic Euro 2012 strikes – scored by Super Mario and Zlatan.
