A great goal right up there with the best, will have as just as much chance of winning as the other 2 favourites

I trust you voted for her! Try to spread the word (Facebook, twitter or whatever you can).

I want her to win and I want to see the headlines and hear the pundits talking about the best goal of the year involved only 1 ball, not 45 balls on the pitch.

Maybe you could over lay the audio from that one onto Stephanie's goal? Imagine if women's football got that kind of reaction from commentators!

It is the best goal out of all three and Im not just saying that because I am a woman or because I am Irish.

My fear is the flashiness of the other peoples videos outshines hers, and I would be afraid people will get dazzled by the shiny lights of sky sports quality footage.

Thats why this needs to be shared. Good on ya OP!

I voted earlier. Be fab for women. And I'm irish so double whammy!

YonicScrewdriver Tue 02-Dec-14 14:35:30

voted, great goal!

Great goal and it'd be great to see her win (think she's got a good amount of backing at this state so I expect she might) but my vote goes to Rodriguez.
Both quality though.

Greysanderson Tue 02-Dec-14 17:41:06

Sorry i had voted earlier, a great goal though I always enjoy quality goals.

To be honest, it's a bit of a swinger - it could've gone anywhere. And the defender's nowhere near tight enough - she shouldn't be getting the second touch, let alone the third. But it still looks great. I've voted.

PanISAButterfly Tue 02-Dec-14 18:31:34

ooh bit harsh there dancingbear!! Agree the defender was a bit on the back foot, but she still had to control the ball and evade her as she commited herself, and you could forgive the defender for not realising she was such a danger from that far out, and SR was in fact about to score the best goal of 2014 grin - and I wouldn't call the shot a swinger, surely? She kept her head down low enough and put her laces through it very stylishly. imho anyways.....

"the defender's nowhere near tight enough"

Seriously! The defender is on her back and between her and the goal the whole time. I watched it over an over again and the only difference I see is that in the men's team she would have been pushed down in the area and given a penalty. There is no interception or tackle to be made by anyone.

The Rodriguez goal is superb, but there are plenty of players that have taken down a ball and curved a high ball in this season. Very few have taken an aerial pass, kept it in the air in the box and volley scored. That's unique and why she deserves it.

Soz. Just got a bit emotional there .... wine

Zazzles007 Tue 02-Dec-14 19:41:25

Yep, great goal, loved her work. Voted grin

And yes, harsh comments, dancingbear.

HesterShaw Tue 02-Dec-14 19:46:08

I nearly started this very thread earlier!

It's a shame it was a mere woman's match ( hmm ) and therefore the camera angle is lousy. It would have looked even more awesome if the camerwork was as professional as it is in the men's game.

MN164 Tue 02-Dec-14 19:54:21

Vote vote vote everyone!

SunshineBossaNova Tue 02-Dec-14 20:01:46

Voted and shared. grin

ToddleWaddle Tue 02-Dec-14 20:04:04

Voted. She has managed to reproduce the goal live on French telly. She plays for one of their clubs now. Really raising the profile of women's football. Good on her.

PuffinsAreFictitious Tue 02-Dec-14 20:27:28
