As we have approached 2010 I have chosen my top 10 goals of the last decade. Enjoy
10. Fabio Quagliarella Sampdoria-Chievo 2006-07
40 yard half-volley over the head of the Chievo goalkeeper
9. Grafite Wolfsburg-Bayern Munich 08-09
Making a mockery of the Bayern defence, rounding the keeper and back-heeling the ball into the net.
8. Manicni Lyon-Roma 06-07
Through pass by Perrotta and Mancini running at Anthony Reveillere and turning him inside out with 4 stepovers and left bolt by Coupet
7. Thierry Henry Arsenal-Liverpool 2003-04
During the invincible season Henry just ran through the static Liverpool back line and cooly slots it past Dudek
6 Alan Shearer Newcastle-Everton 2002-03
Probably his best goal ever. Wonderful first time volley against Everton screamed into top corner
5. Wayne Rooney Manchester United-Newcastle 04-05
After a bit of an argument with the referee, Rooney smashed the ball past Shay Given on the first time volley
4. Cristiano Ronaldo Porto-Manchester United 08-09
Picked up a pass by Anderson and from 35 yards out and it just flew past Helton
3. Dennis Bergkamp Newcastle-Arsenal 01-02
Pass by Pires, Bergkamp just turns Dabizas and makes him look like a fool and just slides it past Given
2. Simon Cox Swindon-Walsall 08-09
Lobbed pass by Lilian Nalis over the shoulder of Cox, 1st touch and then Lobbed it over the Walsall keeper. Ball never touched the floor.
1. Esteban Cambiasso Argentina-Serbia & Montenegro World Cup 2006.
25 passes for this goal wonderful team goal.
So that was my top ten goals of the decade. There was a few that missed out like Di Canio goal against Wimbledon, Maxi’s goal for Argentina against Mexico.
