2. Bale v Stoke City

At number two is Bale's greatest volley, a shot which is seen as a brilliant strike which no player has really imitated perfectly.

With Aaron Lennon running at the Stoke defence on the right side, Bale was unmarked on the left hand side of the box screaming for the ball.

The Englishman looked up and spotted Bale, before playing a cross to the winger; the ball was too high to control, and too low to header, so Bale had only one thing in mind, to hit it first time.

Adjusting his body, Bale lifted his left foot and made a sweet connection with the ball to direct his volley into the very top corner of the goal, literally, an impossible shot to stop for any goalkeeper, as Asmir Begovic was left standing to admire.

The celebration showed how stunned Bale was with the finished, as the stadium was in a awe of silence, with Tottenham fans going crazy, for the 24-year-old had done it again.
