Published Add your comment

Football News

Since his move to Newcastle from Freiburg in January, Papiss Cisse has garnered somewhat of a reputation as a scorer of spectacular goals.

His second strike against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the latter stages of last season was as sensational as they come and the Senegalese striker has been up to his old tricks again - but this time using his head.

Cisse scored with a remarkable header from outside the penalty area against Ivory Coast at the weekend, and you can watch his stunning effort in the video above.

This latest moment of brilliance has encouraged GMF to highlight five other headers that leave us purring. Obviously, there are plenty we have overlooked - so please add your favourites to the comments section below.

Didier Drogba

Bayern Munich v Chelsea


Andy Carroll

Sweden v England


Jared Borgetti

Mexico v Italy


Mart Poom

Derby County v Sunderland


Jone Samuelsen

Odd Greenland v Tromso
