Vote — What Was the Goal of the Week

by Robert on October 6, 2010 · 2 comments

Nic­colo brings up an inter­est­ing debate in his week­end review post that I wanted to put to a vote.  This week­end we saw two incred­i­ble goals in Serie A, and I will throw it out to the read­er­ship to vote on which one was the best.

Con­tender #1Ilicic’s Open­ing Goal Against Fiorentina

Josip Ilicic’s goal was the first of the match and one of two scored in Palermo’s 2–1 defeat of Fiorentina this week­end.  The angle and arch of the shot is what makes this so beau­ti­ful — as it leaves his feet you know there is no chance Frey will save it.  Extra points for this video show­ing the shirt­less fans cel­e­brat­ing like it’s Mardi Gras in New Orleans.

Con­tender #2 — Pirlo’s Game Win­ner Against Parma

Pirlo’s return to action saw him score the first Milan goal from any­one besides Ibrahi­movic in the last three matches.  What makes this an amaz­ing goal is the dis­tance from where he launches it, and you don’t actu­ally think it could work until the ball lands in the back of the net.  It proved to be the only offense on the day and allowed Milan to remain within two points of the top of the table.

The Pirlo goal was simply amazing, especially coming from such an elegant player.

This video (I didn’t make it) captures the mesmerizing control over a game that Pirlo often exerts. I love the guy.
