Best goals across the globe from August 27-28

Coral present Weekend Worldies – where we’ve compiled some of the greatest goals across the globe from August 27th-28th, just for your viewing pleasure.

So, scroll down to see top wonderstrikes from the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga and Championship

Eden Hazard v West Ham

We start with the Premier League clash between Chelsea and West Ham United, in which Belgium international Hazard produced a moment of magic to open the scoring early in the first-half.

The Blues attacker endured a poor last season, but looks to be back to his dazzling best after recent superb showings, proven by this sublime solo run and finish against the Hammers.

Jamie Vardy v Swansea City

Vardy fired Leicester to the top-flight title last season and also earned himself an England call-up for Euro 2016 for his heroics in front of goal.

Having failed to find the target in the Foxes’ opening two league outings, the swift sharpshooter managed to get off the mark against Swansea, as he latched onto a precise Danny Drinkwater through ball and rattled past a helpless Lukas Fabianski.

Toni Kroos v Celta Vigo

Over to Spain next and La Liga giants Real Madrid were narrowly helped to victory thanks to a late winner from Germany international anchorman Kroos, with the midfielder delicately placing the ball right in the bottom corner.

Known for being one of world football’s pass masters, Kroos literally passes the ball past Celta Vigo’s goalie and in off the post to hand Zinedine Zidane’s Galacticos three points.

Xabi Alonso v Werder Bremen

In Germany, former Liverpool midfielder Alonso put Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich ahead with the game’s opener with a stunning half volley from outside the penalty area.

His sweet strike was the start of much misery for Munich’s opponents, as Carlo Ancelotti’s Bavarians went on to rampantly secure a 6-0 thrashing.

Suso v Napoli

In a thrilling Serie A encounter between AC Milan and Napoli, Rossoneri midfielder Suso provided a sensational strike during proceedings, as he wriggled free on the edge of the box and sent a delightful left-footed effort into the top corner.

His strike wasn’t enough to help Milan run out winners, as they were defeated 4-2 by their Italian rivals, though such a strike is worth watching over and over again!

Michael Barrios v Houston Dynamo

Over to the United States next and in an MLS clash between Houston Dynamos and FC Dallas, the latter side extended their lead with an impressive counter attacking goal which was clinically finished off by Michael Barrios.

The Colombian midfielder rounded off the game with this superb curing finish, which was his second of the day.

Jack Grealish v Bristol City

Aston Villa were leading 1-0 at half-time against Bristol City, thanks to an excellent volley from Grealish, but they somehow managed to eventually lose the game 3-1 on their travels.

Villans fans can enjoy their young attacker’s impressive first-time strike below though!
