PDC goal will be on MOTD credits in 30 years’ time

Neville_2943415bPhil Neville has chosen what he considers to be one of the best goals scored in the Premier League for an article for the BBC. The pundit was asked to pick the best strike of the 2000s, and went with West Ham’s Paolo Di Canio’ss scissor kick against Wimbledon in March 2000.

Nevill said “One of the best goals of all time. It was a unique strike, the technique to hit the ball across his body with both feet off the floor was special, there have been great volleyers of the ball like Mark Hughes or Marco van Basten but that was a brilliant strike from a wonderful crossfield ball.”

“Di Canio had to watch the ball come 40 yards through the air, time it right and then get a sensational connection.If it was scored against me I would have been tempted to applaud it.That goal will be on the credits for Match of the Day in 30 years’ time,They do not come around very often! It was a special goal, an iconic moment.”

  1. Was there and had perfect view but looked far better that night on TV,
    I know I keep bringing his name up but when Redknapp brought him to the club I was not expecting my life to change,he brought so much excitement to the ground and he lit the fire in other players Sinclair tried different things when playing alongside him,there was a buzz around every fan and it seemed to pass to the most normal players,
    Please Please buy someone who can make our ground buzz like that again,
    Kevin you need to watch that video for 24 hours over and over then show Corden and remember what club you support.

  2. I agree bubs, I’d like someone like him, someone special with magic feet… Anyway this isn’t my favourite goal of Di Canio, I prefer this one


    • Ahah… After this goal Paolo is saying “mamma mia! mamma mia!” (oh my goodness! oh my goodness!)… lol
