Goals of the decade

Goals of the Decade: A-EWill one of these be your Goal of the Decade? Voting starts Friday 4 December.

A. Paul Scholes, Bradford 0 United 4, League, Valley Parade, 25.03.00
David Beckham pings a corner from the left out to the edge of the area, and Scholesy explodes into a full volley as the ball drops. His shot dips and swerves as it tears through the air towards the bottom left-hand corner of Matt Clarke’s net.

B. Paul Scholes, Middlesbrough 3 United 4, League, Riverside Stadium, 11.4.00
Does nobody on the Boro coaching staff watch Match of the Day? Scholes runs onto Gary Neville's square pass and smashes an unstoppable shot between two defenders and as close to the inside of the right-hand post as is possible.

C. David Beckham, West Ham 2 United 2, League, Upton Park, 26.08.00
Thirty yards from goal, our deadball king strikes a familiar pose - back arched, left arm out, standing leg seeming sure to buckle - and bends the ball viciously from a position outside Shaka Hislop’s left-hand post into the top corner.
