Top 13 Goals of the Week

Another week has passed, and in a week in which players were turning out for both club and country there were some fabulous goals to boot.

Outside the goals of the week themselves, it was a historic week in the MLS as the New York Red Bull’s keeper, Danny Cepero, became the first number 1 in the history of the league to get himself on the scoresheet.

Hats off too to the Austrian T-Mobile Bundesliga for showcasing what will undoubtedly be one of the most bizarre games of the season, in which Strum Graz took a 5-goal lead into the break away at Mattersburg, only to win the game 6-5 after an incredible second 45. (The match highlights can be seen here.)

But back to the agenda. And as always on a Monday afternoon, all we ask is that you sit back and enjoy!
