There is nothing better than a Golazo. I mean a real Golazo. One that is going to see any football fan stand up and applaud the effort, no matter what team they support. Of course, these aren’t your average run of the mill strikes. These are goals you’ll hear from friends about and want to see them again and again. So, without further adieu, below are five goals from the past month that we can watch every minute of every day.

5) - Roberto Soldado vs Atletico Madrid

A wonderful volley from the Spaniard. Teammate Adil Rami played a perfectly ball over the defence, with Soldado connecting perfectly to see his volley loop over Thibaut Courtois and into the top corner.

4) - Lincoln vs Vasco da Gama

Brazilian commentators will scream 'Gooooooooooooooooooooool!' for near enough any goal, but this effort from Lincoln is worth the bellow. Controlling from a corner, and with his back to goal, the midfielder launches an unstoppable volley into the top corner.

3) - Raul Rusescu vs Concordia Chiajna

Straight from Romania, Rusescu shows excellent awareness and close control to take out three defenders in one fluid action before tucking away to make it 3-0 to Steaua Bucharest on the evening, a game they ended winning 6-0.

2) - Taison vs Rosenborg

The initial reaction to this was to compare it with Marco van Basten's stunning volley for Holland against USSR in 1988. To be fair, Taison's effort is closest you'll get to a modern day equivalent. The Brazilian connected perfectly to fire a stunning effort past Alexander Hansen in the Rosenborg net.

1) - Ayanda Patosi vs Standard Liege

A goal deserving to win any game, this goal from Patosi made it's way around Twitter like a wildfire through a timber hut. Involving three players and six touches, none of which touch the ground, the Lokeren youngster finished off the move in spectacular fashion, finding the top corner with his stunning strike.
