The Premier League, La Liga and Serie A have yet to return but with the Bundesliga and Ligue 1 kicking off this weekend, there was more than enough European football to whet our appetites. Here are three goals that caught my eye this weekend.
3. Yoann Gourcuff (Lyon) vs Nice
We all enjoy a good up-and-over the wall free-kick, right? Look no further than Yoann Gourcuff. Also features a shouty French commentator.
2. Zakaria Bakkali (PSV) vs N.E.C
Just think for a moment, what were you doing when you were 17-years old? What ever you were doing, you probably weren’t completing a hat-trick in the Eredivisie. And what a hat-trick goal it was.
1. Peter Ankersen (Esbjerg) vs Aarhus
From Holland to France and finally to Denmark with a hint of a Dutch legend. Shades of Marco van Basten in Euro ’88 vs USSR in this goal from Peter Ankersen. Woof!
