At Molineux on Saturday we saw one of the Premier League goals of the season, and undoubtedly the best strike in English football in 2011. In a match in which Kenny Dalglish’s Liverpool defeated Wolves 3-0, the second goal saw Raul Meireles strike a ball that was dropping out of the sky and hit a stunning, dipping volley into the top corner.
However, forget Meireles’ effort, the Portuguese midfielder hasn’t scored the goal of the 2011 so far. That accolade surely has to go to Freddy Guarin, whose 40 yard effort in the 4-1 win over Maritimo simply screams into the back of the net. He even can’t quite believe it himself!
Merieles v Guarin – whose goal is better? Take a look at the video and decide for yourself…
