Winner Stays On: Keeper scores overhead kick

Pitchside

In our regular weekly feature, we present five goals published on our site and you then decide which is your favourite!

But there is a twist: in classic 'winner stays on' format, the goal with the most votes then defends the title the following week against four new efforts.

Shunsuke Nakamura is the reigning champ after claiming a second victory last week and that means we have four new challengers vying for your vote.

This week's options are:

Reigning champion: Shunsuke Nakamura - Yokohama F. Marinos vs Oita Trinita

A classic slice of Nakamura magic as the former Celtic midfielder bends one in from a free-kick from a tight angle.

Contender 1: Bryan Cristante - Milan youth team v Barcelona youth team

Starring in the UEFA Youth League, Cristante wallops one in from 25 yards as he finds the top corner of the net.

Contender 2: Martin Nespor - Mlada Boleslav v Viktoria Plzen

One backheel would be impressive enough, but this goal comes following two in quick succession.

Contender 3: Cole Kpekawa - QPR U18 v Crystal Palace U18

The Rangers kid catches the ball absolutely perfectly as he lashes one in from 35 yards. Simply brilliant.

Contender 4: Tolo Barcelo - UE Alcudia v Mallorca B

An overhead kick. In the dying seconds. By a goalkeeper. Yes, this really happened.
