We all appreciate the beauty of a solo goal.

The player in question galloping forward, brushing off their opponents with a single stride, leaving them behind as if they were a childhood memory best forgotten, and then either rounding the keeper before sliding the ball home or executing the perfect finish past a helpless keeper.

They are a rarity but, when they come along, they are wonderful to watch. Seeing Gareth Bale out sprint Barcelona’s Marc Bartra from inside his own half before scoring the winner for Real Madrid in the Copa del Rey final a few months ago was a thing of pure beauty.

But was it the best? Not a chance. Well, you could argue that they’re all the best in their own right. But here’s FIVE I’d say top it.
