The Best Bicycle Kick Goals

A collection of some of the best bicycle kick goals ever scored. Like the volley and like a long shot from distance, the bicycle kick is a moment of surprise, a moment of going for it and taking a chance.  Pele is the name that pops up when I think of the bicycle kick, but Ronaldinho and Rivaldo are names that also come to mind and have scored bicycle kick goals that won big games and qualifications for their teams. And then there’s Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney, who surprised many with the bicycle kick in the image above.

Gareth Bale’s INCREDIBLE overhead kick in the Champions League final. It’s tough to pick the best of the best of all bicycle kick goals scored but surely Bale’s is up near the top. Bale’s bicycle kick took place in a final no less. Amazing goal no doubt. the keeper had no chance and world class Liverpool Virgil van Dijk defender doesn’t have a chance to stop it.
