International football contributed the opening six goals in this week’s goals of the week.
That included a American volley, a French solo special, a Qatari long range rocket, that wonder-goal from Zlatan, a wonderful end-to-end attack from Armenia, and one of the sweetest volleys of the season from Nigeria.
When domestic football returned last weekend we were supplied with a terrific solo effort from the Bundesliga, a sensational balls-never-touched-the-ground goal from Brazil, an acrobatic overhead from Turkey and lastly a lazer-beamed bullet from the Premier League.
