Five of the best: International goals (1)

Published Add your comment

The international break tends to be considered as an unwanted mid-season attraction rather than an exciting Premier League sabbatical, with supporters and managers alike preferring their players to be under the jurisdiction of their clubs.

Fans would rather see Wayne Rooney slam the ball past Joe Hart in an absorbing Manchester derby than than witness the two combine to put a team of part-timers to the sword in the pursuit of World Cup qualification.

The break does, however, offer the opportunity to cast one's mind back to some of the great international encounters and goals of yesteryear, and GMF has done just that for the latter.

We've cobbled together a list of five goals from the annals of international history and, before anyone moans, it is not intended to be definite selection, merely an example of some of our favourites.
