Brazilian attacker Ronaldinho celebrates his birthday on March 21.
The 32-year-old played a part in kick-starting the current era at Barcelona, which has been continued by Pep Guardiola, with his flair play mirroring that of any Barca great past or present.
Prior to the emergence of Lionel Messi, who Ronaldinho seldom played with during the end of his Barcelona career, the former Paris St Germain man clocked up a number of memorable strikes.
To mark the birthday of the attacking whiz, GMF has decided to take a look at his finest strikes for club and country.
The goal that divided opinion among football supporters throughout the 2002 World Cup saw Ronaldinho knock-out England on their way to winning the tournament as his curling free-kick looped over a stranded David Seaman. But did he mean it?
With the group stage match on a knife edge, Barca's trump card settled it with a piece of individual brilliance. Picking the ball up outside the penalty area, he drove in between two Milan defenders before rifling the ball high, into the corner.
With the Catalans on the rack, as Chelsea stormed into a 3-0 lead, Ronaldinho dragged his side back into the game. His spot kick followed, before a brilliant effort from outside the penalty area gave Petr Cech no chance.
In the midst of a untouchable run against their greatest rivals, Ronaldinho produced his greatest strike against Madrid in 2005. After picking the ball up on the left, Ronaldinho galloped past Sergio Ramos, eluded a further defender before smashing past Iker Casillas.
Xavi lofted an inch perfect pass to Ronaldinho who despite having his back to goal, produced an overhead kick in one movement to belt the ball past Sebastian Viera from 10 yards.
