Vote: Top 10 Goals of the Week

Monday once again brings us to our top goals of the week list.

Our offering this week kicks-off with a Norwegian-based goal that makes the cut not because of the finish itself, but rather the assist. From there we find our first golazo of the week from the Women’s World Cup and an absolute corker scored against England’s Lionesses.

A legendary Welsh striker rocks up at spot three with a picture-perfect set-play from the Europa League, before the pre-season schedule provides a net-buster at number four.

It’s back to the Women’s World Cup at spot five where we enjoy a wonderful opportunist howitzer from an American lady. The United States stays in focus at goals six and seven, as we enjoy two wonder strikes from last weekend in the MLS.

That leaves three: an outrageous free-kick from Asia, a step-over stunner from possibly the great female footballer of all-time, and we end with an outside-of-the-boot special from the Tippeligaen.

Please remember that we’re looking for YOUR VOTE to see which of the top ten goals YOU think is best. The poll can be found at the bottom of this post.

After stressing that our list is compiled in chronological order (and not order of preference), all that’s left to say is sit back and enjoy!
