WATCH: 4 jaw-dropping bicycle kick goals

Phakaaathi Reporter

Cristiano Ronaldo scored a breath-taking  goal against Juventus in the UEFA Champions league last week, which was compared to many overhead kick goals.

While some argue that this is the best ever bicycle kick goal, some believe there are others better than it.

Sibusiso Zuma’s goal for FC Copenhagen against Brøndby IF in 2001 and Oscarine Masuluke’s overhead kick have been mentioned, while others think Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Lionel Messi have scored better bicycle kick goals than the Ronaldo one.

In an effort to settle the debate, Phakaaathi has listed the four jaw-dropping bicycle kick goals mentioned on social media.

1. Sibusiso Zuma

Former Bafana Bafana striker Sibusiso Zuma scored an overhead goal for FC Copenhagen back in 2001 against Brøndby IF. Zuma was outside the penalty box when he put the ball in the back of the net.


  1. Oscarine Masuluke

The lanky shotstopper earned a point for his team on the night as well as a Puskas award nomination.


  1. Zlatan Ibrahimovic

The LA Galaxy striker helped the Swedish national team beat England 4-2 in an international game.


  1. Lionel Messi

The Barcelona star has scored a number of bicycle kick goals in his career for the La Liga side.

Which one do you believe is the best overhead kick goal?
