thumbnail Hello,

Goal.com and 101 Great Goals invite you to vote for the best strike of the week...

Seriously. Where did the last seven days go? The seamless flow of the matches from Champions League to the Europa League to domestic football saw the last week whizz by.

Tucking straight into our list, Europe's premier club competition supplied some wonderful goals to kick things off this week. That included a blistering half-volley at goal one, a thunderous free-kick at position two, and an unstoppable ripper into the top corner at goal three.

From the Champions League to the A-League for goal four, where we find a genius lob on the angle which was completely intentional and completely amazing. We then flip back to Europe as Tottenham fans get another opportunity to see that goal from San Siro.

Goal six offers an acrobatic beauty scored in the Ukraine, while a breathtaking "no-goalkeeper-in-world-football-could-have-saved-it" free-kick rolls up at spot seven.

That leaves just three.

A superb solo effort from the Spanish second division occupies position eight, an incredible curler into the far top corner fills in spot nine, while our first header of the season to make our goals of the week list rounds things off nicely.

Please remember, all we do is pick the top ten goals and put them in chronological order. We leave it up to you to decide which goal is the best.

All that’s left to say is sit back and enjoy!
