Five Great Left-foot Volleys

February 19 2007

There are few finer sights in football than a well-struck left-foot volley. Right-foot volleys can be pretty special, but given the predominant right-footedness of most players, a left-foot volley is just that little bit rarer.

Robin van Persie and Matthew Taylor have both scored sublime left-foot volleys in the Premiership this season. But how do they compare to three of the best left-foot volleys scored in Europe over the past few seasons?

1. Silvinho, for Celta Vigo v Barcelona (h), La Liga, 2002-2003

2. Mariano Pernia, for Getafe v Barcelona (h), La Liga, 2005-2006

3. Francesco Totti, for Roma v Sampdoria (a), Serie A, 2006-2007

I was going to put these five goals into some kind of order, but I just can’t separate them. Football doesn’t get much sweeter than this.
