Nike CTR360 Shoe Contest Results

It was very hard to select a winner, since so many good videos were submitted, from volleys to free kicks to bicycle kicks. A lot of quality. So first we narrowed it down to the top ten videos listed below:

In the end though, Rivaldo’s bicycle kick goal for Barcelona against Valencia proved to be the top video submission. It was Rivaldo’s third goal of the game, completing the hattrick, and the goal put Barcelona into the Champions League the next season and was scored in the dying minutes of the game.

Two other goals were close, Guti’s back heel was just pure genius, and Van Basten’s volley was incredible. And of course Messi, with his maze run just like his idol, was hard to pass up. And Iniesta, well his was a big goal too, but not bicycle kick.

How do you choose between Guti’s back heel and a scorpion kick? How do you choose between two game winners: Rivaldo’s bicycle kick versus Valencia and Iniesta’s versus Chelsea? It was tough.

Then there were a lot of compilation videos, from Cristiano Ronaldo to Ronaldinho, to Zidane to the Egyptian Zidane, but we thought we’d go with a pure goal rather than a collection of moves or highlights.

There were also the trick free kicks, goal mishaps, double bicycle kicks, and even a coach scoring during a game. And there was one even more unique video, a finger soccer juggling clip. All clips worth a look.

We took a lot of factors into consideration before choosing the winner. The meaning and importance of the game, how unique was the move or goal, what point in the game did the goal come, was it a team goal or an individual goal, has someone scored a goal like that before or has the goal ever been duplicated. For example, we had the Messi Maradona imitation as a submission. In truth, it was hard not to choose any video with Messi in it.

It’s no wonder that most of the videos submitted were of current, former, or at one time candidates for FIFA World Player of the Year, from Messi to Cristiano to Iniesta to Ronaldinho. And it’s no surprise that Barcelona had the most submissions, if you include Ronaldinho, Messi, Iniesta, Ibrahimovic, and Rivaldo. Dutch side Ajax had two of the highest quality clips, with Ibrahimovic and Van Basten both scoring remarkable goals. All in all, we think we made the right choice, as Rivaldo’s goal was en epic game winner in a 3-2 match.

Below are some of the other videos that stood out to us. Please scroll down and take a look. We really appreciate all those who participated and submitted a video.

Look out for our next contest in the next few weeks. Thanks.

Former Serbian international Dragan Stojkovic, now the manager of Japanese club Nagoya Grampus, showed his skill in the J-league match against Yokohama Marinos. At the end of the game a Marinos player was injured and the goalkeeper kicked the ball away to halt the game. Stojkovic first timed the ball back on the volley and it found its way into the goal after a bounce.

Luis Landin, when he played for Cruz Azul, scores off a scorpion. Which is basically a frontwards bicycle kick, where you score with the heel. Landin now plays in the MLS for the Houston Dynamo.
