Vote: Top Goals of the Week (Danny Welbeck, Gareth Bale, Lionel Messi or Alessandro Del Piero?)
International week gives us less goals to choose from, arguably though, the quality is as high as ever.
We begin with a Japanese midfielder’s Messi-esque solo wonder goal which you can see on the gif before we get to a fine moment for Malta in World Cup qualifying.
Familiar names Danny Welbeck and Gareth Bale then come into view with two of the most picturesque international goals of the weekend, followed by the South American offerings, a howitzer by Juan Carlos Marino and an under-the-wall free-kick by Leo Messi.
Alessandro Del Piero’s first goal in the A-League is at position seven followed by three wonder goals you probably haven’t seen. A half-way line golazo, followed by a special scissors and ending with Douglas’ cracking strike.
Enjoy and don’t forget to vote!
