So there you have it: the five greatest volleyed goals of the 21st century.

The goals you just read about made the list not just because of the sheer ferocity with which they were struck or the extent to which they nearly tore a hole in the back of the net; they were each selected based on their importance in terms of matches or trophies won.

I trust that a topic like this will divide many opinions, and cause a lot of disagreements. If so, please feel free to have a say!

Picking just five out of so many goals scored was not an easy task at all, and many great goals were left out as I chopped the list down to five.

Please feel free to suggest goals that you think I have unfairly left out of this list. Some of the ones I considered are:

Maxi Rodriguez vs Mexico
Thierry Henry vs Manchester United
Arjen Robben vs Man United
Paul Scholes vs Aston Villa
Wayne Rooney vs Newcastle
Robin van Persie vs Aston Villa
Robin van Persie vs Everton
Robin van Persie vs Charlton Athletic
Joe Cole vs Sweden
Fernando Torres vs Balckburn
Steven Gerrard vs Middlesborough
Papiss Cisse vs Chelsea
