Among the characteristics Eric Cantona certainly didn't lack as a player and a person were imagination and audacity; beautifully evidenced by this selection of goals chipped over the flailing arms of outwitted keepers...
Eric vs Sheffield United, Bramall Lane, 1994/95
"…Oh, exquisitely done," screeched Martin Tyler as a breakaway United attack in a 2-0 FA Cup third round win over Sheffield United ended with the breathtaking deftness of Cantona's touch and arguably the finest of his lobbed goals.
Eric vs Sunderland, Old Trafford, 1996/97
It's the go-to goal for all Cantona compilations: audacious idea, brilliantly executed? Check. Befuddling his opponents? Check. Dramatic, cocky celebration? Check.
