Greatest Bicycle Kicks Ever

ib2.jpg

Considering they're bicycle kicks, it's quite ironic that they seem to be more like buses. When one comes along...well, you know the rest.

Hot on the heels of Zlatan Ibrahimovic's beauty for Sweden against England last week, comes another scorcher, courtesy of AC MIlan's Philippe Mexès in a Champions League game against Anderlecht.

The goal was an absolute pearler from outside the box, made all the more incredible by the fact that Mexès is a centre back. Maybe he should do a Paul Warhurst and go up front permanently.

So, once again the debate is on for which is the greatest bicycle kick ever. We're sticking with our original judgement: Mexès & Zlatan tied with Rooney, but probably below Trevor Sinclair (no.2 on the last clip) and Mauro Bressan (no. 1). Judge for yourself below.
