It’s been a couple of weeks since we posted our top goals of the week list, so today we’ve compensated by listing our top 10 goals over the past fortnight.
Goldenballs’ 36-yard beauty starts us off, before a ridiculously good volley from the Russian second division takes hold at spot two.
Our first overhead-kick appears at number three, followed by a he’s still got! moment of class from everyone’s favourite NY Red Bull, which is sandwiched in between another unbelievable bicycle kick (this time from China).
Spot six is all about the jaw-dropping assist rather than the finish itself, goal seven locates a terrific backheel flick from South Africa, while a doelpunt of the highest quality surfaces at spot eight.
That leaves two: a Messi-esque slalom golazo for a Porto teenager, and we end off with a never-gonna-forget moment for Roma’s new 21-year-old Greek centre-half who marked his debut match with a sublime chip from distance.
(APOLOGIES: Forgot to include Mauricio Molina’s amazing scorpion kick golazo (FC Seoul) v Busan I’Park from July 21.)
