7 January 2015

Take a look at our top five countdown and get involved on Twitter with your opinions using the hashtag #SkyBlueWorldie...

Jim O'Brien described his goal for Coventry City against Walsall last Saturday as a 'Worldie'. That got us thinking about other great strikes and in Jim's honour, we've compiled a list of our top five 'Worldies' scored by Sky Blue players in the 21st century.

There are goals everyone will remember, as well as some lost classics you may have forgotten about. Everyone has a different opinion, so get involved and post us your responses on Twitter, using the hashtag #SkyBlueWorldie.

FIVE: David McGoldrick V Stevenage - 2012/13

We kick off our countdown with one of the most prolific strikers City has had in recent years. This goal proved to be 'Didzy's' last in Sky Blue colours and what a goal it is too. Catching Stevenage keeper Steve Arnold off his line, he kept his composure and chipped the ball home from 30 yards out in the last minute to make the score 3-1 and seal a memorable win.

(Fast Forward to 1:50 for the goal.)

FOUR: Carl Baker V Rotherham - 2013/14

Another goal in added time to seal a 3-1 win, Baker picked up the ball in his own penalty area with Millers keeper Adam Collin having come up to try and equalise from a Rotherham corner. The midfield man then ran to the halfway line and scored from his own half to spark wild celebrations from the travelling Sky Blue Army.

(Fast Forward to 1:53 for the goal.)

THREE: Stern John V Sunderland - 2006/07

It was the opening game of the season and City were trailing by a goal with 20 minutes to go. A punt forward looked to be sailing towards the goalkeeper, but Stern John brilliantly trapped the ball on the edge of the Sunderland box, made some space and cracked an unstoppable shot into the top corner.


TWO: Dennis Wise V Hull - 2005/06

Almost everyone remembers Trevor Sinclair's overhead kick for Queens Park Rangers in the FA Cup, but former skipper Dennis Wise scored a goal every bit as good. With the ball sitting up for him on the edge of the box from a flick on, the little man did not look at the goal. Instead he composed himself and launched a bicycle kick that looped over the keeper and into the net.


ONE: Franck Moussa V Preston - 2013/14

For a goal that had everything, look no further than Franck Moussa's goal against Preston. Last second equaliser? Check. 30 yard screamer? Check. Against top league opposition? Check. Moussa's goal will be one that lives long in the memory and it wasn't even goal of the season, that honour went to another Moussa goal for City, against Leyton Orient earlier in that season!

(Fast Forward to 1:22 for the goal.)
