John Carew (Cyprus 1-2 Norway):
Honourable mention(s): Tarmo Kink (Serbia 1-3 Estonia); Niko Kranjčar (Israel 1-2 Croatia)
Is there a special reason why this goal didn’t qualify? Wasn’t it eligible for some reason?
It was a stupendous goal, but I try to only include goals scored in the major European and South American leagues or in international competitions because I don’t think you can fairly assess the merit of a goal unless you know a little bit about the context of the game in which it was scored.
That Burrows goal was indeed amazing.
For next weeks edition, all 3 goals are well worth a mention in this match, although the last one is by far the best, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pdFpMd67BTE&feature=related
This is the 2nd leg of the playoff between Iceland U21 and Scotland U21 for a spot in the Euro U21 Men Finals in Denmark next summer. Iceland won previous leg 2-1 and this second leg 2-1 as well.
The two Icelandic goals scored by Gylfi Þór Sigurðsson (FH, Breiðablik, Reading and now 1899 Hoffenheim) and the Scottish goal by Cristhoper McGuire, a lovely taken high flier over the Icelandic goalkeeper who was egging his team on, only to end up with they yolk on his face :p
[…] Send a search party to Cyprus to find out if John Carew left his talent when he was out there on international duty. […]
