Oliver Giroud Arsenal vs Crystal Palace
Olivier Giroud has never been famous for his incredible technique. but in a London derby against Crystal Palace he produced a piece of pure magic. As Alexis crossed the ball, Giroud was running between two defenders and the ball was flying to his back. Probably even Giroud himself was left wondering how the ball ended in the back of the net.
Grafite Wolfsburg vs Bayern Munich
The Brazilian went past 2 defenders and the goalkeeper before cooly slotting the ball in the net. It would not have been so impressive if it was against some lowly side, but this goal was scored against Bundesliga heavyweights Bayern Munich.
Cristiano Ronaldo Portugal vs Hungary
On the biggest of stages in Euro 16 Ronaldo found the net with a great back heel goal. The execution was perfect, as the ball was flying fast, but Cristiano managed to change the trajectory with a deft touch into the corner.
