Vote: Top 10 Goals of the Week
Are you ready? Not long to go now…
The Community Shield curtain raiser signalled the 2012/2013 campaign proper is heading our way and the quality of the list below and in those goals that narrowly missed out should tell you we are in for a Golazo laden season.
A free-kick master kicks things off, followed by a quality strike from Angel Di Maria and then two long rangers you probably wouldn’t have seen.
Mo Abdellaoue’s rather excellent back heel precedes a picture perfect Wayne Rooney free-kick and in position seven is a “playground” Golazo from Vietnam.
We round things off with a Carlos Tevez arrow, a lung bursting run and strike from deep (including a Nuts!) and a brilliant backheel from one of Brazil’s rising stars.
