As regular Pies readers will know, in the past couple of weeks we’ve been counting down our top 10 goals of the season. This is the daddy of them all…

Maicon is a right-back. That’s the same position as Lee Dixon and Danny Mills. Incredible.

And in the context of Inter’s season – they really had to win at Juve to retain their Serie A title – Maicon’s goal was GIGANTIC.

I like this goal even more than because it’s not perfect – Maicon almost loses control of the ball but has the skill and athleticism to recover and beat none other than Gigi Buffon, aka the great keeper of our time.

Agree/disagree with our No.1? Let us be having you.


No.2 – Nicky Maynard, QPR v BRISTOL CITY, Championship

No.3 – Maynor Figueroa, Stoke v WIGAN, Premier League
