    YES!! agree with the guy Taner!

    And there is the free kick of Beckham against Greece.. and another freekick of Ronaldinho (under the wall) being very creative!

    And Rooney’s wonder goal against Newcastle..

    And Eric Cantona’s chip goal to the very top corner when he was at Man U..
    And all those Peter Crouch’ bicycles!

    The goals weren’t very cool, and some of them I had not heard of! But I liked Zidane’s super left volley, and Maradona’s solo goal!

    But the rest didn’t deserve those lists!

    Why didn’t you add the Maxi Rodriquez goal in the 2006 World Cup against mexico, for the win, you know, the bended upper-ninety volley by the player from argentina that was virtually unknown?
