Vote: Top 10 Goals of the Week (ft Iniesta, Muller, Maresca & Suarez)
- November 5, 2012
It’s Monday, so welcome back for your weekly helping of golazos.
This week’s top 10 starts with an overhead-volley from Germany’s Pokal cup, while the Spanish cup arena served up our second entry with a top corner curler from one of world football’s best midfielders.
The Ukrainian league was the backdrop for a long range free-kick at spot three, the Bundesliga’s goal of the week from the acutest of angles appears at number four, and a terrific surprise-curling free-kick from Poland made the list at five.
Memories of David Platt’s volleyed golazo against Belgium were conjured up by a stunning strike at six, one of the goals of the season – an unstoppable bicycle-kick – takes it place at number seven, while one of the best ever volleys-from-a-corner routine made it mark at eight.
That leaves two: Luis Suarez’s wonderful control and finish against Newcastle, and an unbelievable half-volley from the Russian Premier League.
