Gareth Bale v West Ham

There are some goals that are great because of their sheer beauty, while others stand out because of their importance. Then are are a small handful that straddle both, and the usually live long in the memory.

Tottenham had found themselves 2-1 down against West Ham with their Champions League charge faltering. Gylfi Sigurdsson pulled the scores level before Bale impetuously slammed the ball past Juusi Jaskelainen in the dying seconds having been fouled moments earlier. A great goal, with an even better celebration.
