21 of the best bicycle kicks of all time: Ronaldo, Rooney, Zlatan…
Pretty much every football fan will have a memory of a great bicycle kick, but what has been the best one you’ve ever seen scored?
Before we get into this, it’s worth pointing out we’re well aware of the differences between a bicycle kick, an overhead kick and a scissor kick. But that’s far too long to fit in a headline so just enjoy these great goals and save your hate for someone else.
And be sure let us know on Twitter @planetfutebol if we’ve forgotten a classic you want adding to the list.
