Supporters who spend half their time at a football match looking through a mobile phone receive their fair share of criticism, either rightly or wrongly, but without them we wouldn't be able to watch clips like these.
Here are five famous goals filmed by supporters from the stands.
Ronaldinho – Barcelona v Sevilla
Barcelona fans probably had a good idea that Ronaldinho would become a Barcelona legend after watching the Brazilian genius score this sensational solo goal on his La Liga debut.
Ronaldinho picks the ball up inside his own half, drifts past two opponents, before crashing an unstoppable shot off the underside of the crossbar to send the Barcelona faithful into raptures.

Cristiano Ronaldo – Manchester United v Fulham
Not the best quality video, but you won't get a better angle of Cristiano Ronaldo's memorable goal against Fulham at Craven Cottage from 2007.
The Portuguese superstar was in breathtaking point around this time – and this goal helped United on their way to sealing another Premier League title.

Lionel Messi – Argentina v Brazil
The world's best player scored a ridiculous solo goal to complete his hat-trick in June 2012 –for Argentina against fierce South American rivals Brazil. Does it get any better than that?
It might have only been a friendly, but that term can never seriously be used when these two giants meet.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic – Sweden v Italy
We're not sure whether the person in question used a mobile phone or a proper camcorder to film this goal from Euro 2004 – nine years ago! – but, nevertheless, we're thankful.
This isn't Zlatan's best ever international goal – if anyone has fan footage of the England goal, please bring it to our attention – although it is potentially his second best.
The Sweden international put his taekwondo skills to good use with this clever flick against Italy.

Paul Pogba – Juventus v Udinese
We bow down to the fan who managed to record this goal from the stands – it really is an extraordinary piece of footage.
The camera zooms in at the perfect moment to witness French starlet Paul Pogba rifle an unstoppable curling effort off the underside of the crossbar from pitch level.
