Vote: Top 10 Goals of the Week (ft Falcao, Bebe, Eriksen, Messi, Torres & Hazard)
Welcome to our Christmas Day top 10 goals of the weke list!
Slight liberties on the rule for entrants are taken with goal one which could well become known as the greatest fustal goal of all time, while Manchester United’s former homeless football star appears at position two with a solo special from the reserves.
Dutch football comes into view with golazos from two of the best players in the Eredivisie at numbers three and four, and a belter from Serie A steps up at spot five.
Lionel Messi notched his 91st and final golazo of 2012 at six, El Nino arguably bagged his best ever Chelsea goal at seven, while we stay at Stamford Bridge for a lovely Lampard thumper on his 500th EPL appearance.
That leaves two: yet another quality Chelsea goal from Belgium starlet Eden Hazard and finally a thunderbolt from Holland from Sunday night.
