The 101 Greatest Goals of 2011/2012 list was released six days ago and voting is still open.
Considering it has been the week after the Champions League final, traditionally the list match of the season, there shouldn’t even be a list of any note below.
However, proving that football never stops, there are some absolute crackers below.
We kick off with a brilliant free-kick you won’t have seen followed by an acrobatic effort from the MLS by former Aston Villa striker Juan Pablo Angel before another goal from the US of A, a howitzer by Emilio Renteria.
The “David Beckham of Iraq” chips in with goal 4, and at spot 5 is a really well worked free-kick which will hopefully placate those who say we don’t have enough team goals in these weekly lists.
Jasmin Kurtic then chips in with an “unsaveable” free-kick before the most eye catching of the top goals, Alecsandro’s bicycle kick.
We close out with Michael Bradley’s picture perfect strike v Scotland, Nick Powell showing the world why he is reportedly Manchester United-bound and then a terrific goal from a man known best for being part of Kasabian.
