Which of these overhead kick goals is your favourite? See video

In football, skills, possession, style of play are important but what the fans in the Stadium or in front the TV screens want to see is a goal. In fact, goals as many as possible.

There are different ways in which goals can be scored and one which is arguably the most fascinating is the overhead kick goal.

It takes a lot of precision, positioning and a great delivery of the ball to score a goal like that.

In recent times, we have seen opposing fans clap for a player that scored an overhead kick goal against their own team. Such artistry need to be applauded indeed.
