The summer season has done little to curb the volume of football matches over the past seven days, and happily we’ve once again been supplied with a bountiful amount of golazos.
We start this week’s top 10 in the Brazilian second division with a quality backheeled finish, followed by a long-range ripper of a free-kick from Finland.
The international football scene then takes over.
A thumper from France appears at spot three, a terrific last minute solo-special pops up at number four, while a dark horse to swoop the top goalscorer award at the upcoming Euros scored an acrobatic beauty at five.
Two goals from La Albiceleste which cut across the Barcelona/Real Madrid divide rock up at positions six and seven, while position 8 is filled by one of the all-time great Portuguese playmakers who proved he’s still got it against Manchester United’s legends over the weekend.
That leaves two: a wonderful free-kick from Boca Juniors’ talisman in the cup semi-final, and lastly a world-class chipped finish from a Tottenham player who strangely rarely gets a game for the Lilywhites.
