This one is considered the best goal ever scored in Holland:

Van Basten (overhead kick in the far upper corner)

But I also like Rivaldo's OHK very much! 8)

These are all tricks. :D

But if tricks are your thing I would say the Rivaldo one...

This is one of my favourite topics, but the subject matter is just too wide....

But if you want to discuss the best 'overhead kick' goal.... here's my contribution. :-)

In the non-overhead category, I always had a soft spot for this one. Maybe not the greatest goal ever but possibly the cheekiest bit of technique.

This one is one of the 'best' World Cup goals I have seen... because it was not just a show-off goal in the qualifiers, it was an absolutely massive goal.

These, however, may not make the collection.... :lol:

I particularly like the last one!!

Obviously the Maradona goal is a classic. Those overhead kicks don't impress me so much anymore, they are nice, but somehow all the same. The German Klaus Fischer scored an important goal (3-3 in extra time vs France in 1982) via overhead kick, his best in that category was from 1977 (vs Switzerland), Germany's goal of the century. Sadly, I can't find either of them online.

The most incredible goal I ever witnessed personally (and also cannot be found online) was the German goal of the year 2000. Hertha was playing Köln, a relegation candidate, here in Berlin. After 28 minutes, my team was down 0-2. At the kick off, the ball was passed a meter to Alves and shot from there directly into the upper corner of the goal, a distance of 52 meters. You can't even say the keeper was too far in front of his goal, the ball just fit perfectly. Thanks to that, Hertha went on to win the game 4-2.

While unsuccessfully searching for these goals, I did find this incredible ice hockey goal:

I do agree somewhat about overhead kicks. They are very skillful to attempt, but the direction of the shot is somewhat random and the 'great' ones are the ones that are lucky enough to go in.

This goal by Trevor Sinclair in 1997 is better than the Rivaldo one - I actually posted a link before reading Robs post ... so I am editing it now :(

I think this thread should be renamed 'Best Goal Ever (not scored against England)'
