The Spurs midfielder reveals a surprising preference as his favourite goal he's ever scored

Victor Wanyama has revealed his headed goal against Barcelona in the Uefa Champions League back in 2012 remains his personal favourite.

The Tottenham midfielder, who recently won Spurs' Goal of the Season Award for a stunning long-range strike in the 2-2 draw against Liverpool in February, stated that the significance of his headed goal for Celtic sees it remain a cherished memory.

“I am not taking anything away from the goal against Liverpool, but if you ask me, the headed goal against Barcelona remains my favourite,” Wanyama told Goal.

“The goal came out of nowhere! We barely touched the ball, so scoring that goal will always remain special,” the Kenyan national team captain, who is on holiday in his native country, recalled.

“In that match, we went on to win 2-1, so the goal and the match are special not only to me but the entire Celtic family; given the type of the opponent, we were up against,” he revealed.

This season's strike in the dramatic game against Liverpool was historic for Spurs as well as Wanyama since he became the first Spur’s’ player to win the Goal of the Month Award after the Premier League introduced its own prize at the start of the 2016/2017 season.

He was the second African player to win the monthly award in the 2017/18 season, after Morocco's Sofiane Boufal clinched the October 2017 award for his solo goal for Southampton against West Bromwich Albion.

That goal went on to win the Premier League Goal of the Season award.
