Hello everybody! I know you couldn’t wait for this week’s top 10 and neither can I… Yet, this time it will be split into two top 5 lists, and both are going to be about football, or soccer as it is called in American English. The football season is over, all of Europe’s major leagues have assigned their title and on Saturday Barcelona has given evidence of their unparalleled superiority in the Champions League Final against Manchester United: what better reason to share some of my Favorite Goals of All Times?
1. Diego Armando Maradona (El Pibe de Oro): the greatest player ever and the master for all generations to come!
2. Lionel Messi (La Pulce): the student who may one day exceed his master…

3. Roberto Baggio (Il Divin Codino): probably Italy’s best player ever!
4. Dennis Bergkamp (The Iceman): despite the nickname, pure talent and fantasy.
5. Francesco Totti (Il Pupone): an incredible career with even more incredible goals.
