We had one of those rare weekends in the world of football that prompt you to praise the people that discovered out great game.
One of those special weekends where watchers of the game around the globe get treated to the truly sublime.
GiveMeFootball want to pool this magic into one place so we can sit and view in awe at the array of incredible strikes that went in.
The variety of brilliance was also something to behold; there were thunderous volleys, exquisite chips and sumptuously clean strikes.
It was a great weekend and GMF won’t delay any longer in bringing you the best of it with top five Goals of the Weekend from around the globe.
Now, before you get your undies in a twist, GMF is aware not everyone will agree with the choices below but that’s ok.
We want you to join in and tell us which you think is best or point us towards those that we missed and you think we’ll enjoy.
So, here they are…
Christian Eriksen, Ajax
The talented young Denmark international has been linked with a Premier League move and he may not have to wait long for it if he carries on doing things like this.
Eredivisie leaders Ajax thumped Heracles 4-0 to maintain their three-point lead at the top of the table and Eriksen rounded things off with a brilliant curled shot into the far top corner from the corner fo the area.
Matthew Lowton, Aston Villa
There’s something about the Britannia Stadium as it seems to be conducive to some of the best goals you are ever likely to see in the Premier League – see Cameron Jerome, Peter Crouch and Eden Hazard.
Struggling Aston Villa’s season could have been saved by Lowton’s absolute belter – Stoke City had just equalised and were in the ascendency before the Villa defender chest controlled a poorly cleared corner and hammered a volley into the far corner.
Loic Remy, QPR
The Frenchman is beginning to find his feet in the Premier League and if, as is expected, QPR go down, there will a host of big clubs lining up to take him off their hands.
QPR fans thought he had won it for them with this sublime side-footed finish with five minutes remaining, only to have their heart broken in the dying seconds.
Kevin Mirallas, Everton
If you thought the Belgian’s goal against Stoke City last week was good then you will love this one. Tottenham are in danger of repeating last season’s end of season failure but there wasn’t a great deal they could have done about Everton’s second.
Mirallas picked up a loos ball midway in the Spurs half, drove past two defenders into the box, twisted Steven Caulker sideways and coolly finished into the far corner. Classy goal.
Gonzalo Higuain, Real Madrid
Real Madrid warmed up for their second leg clash with Galatasaray with a powerful performance after going behind early on.
Higauin got them back on track, however, with a sumptuous scissors kick volley from Xabi Alonso’s perfect cross – Madrid went on to triumph 5-1 in the end.
