The top 10 goals of the year

FIFA has selected it's top 10 goals of the year, from across the globe. And they're a meaty bunch. Brilliantly Glentoran footballer Matty Burrows will go head-to-head with the mighty Lionel Messi.

Burrows and his Barcelona opposite number were named on the 10-man shortlist for the Puskas Award, along with former Chelsea star Arjen Robben and Arsenal's Samir Nasri.

Burrows' 20-yard back-heeled volley against Portadown last month has been seen by millions on the internet and could even win.
