Match: Boca Juniors v. Velez Sarsfield
Competition: 2009-10 Argentine Primera Division
Ground: La Bombonera, Buenos Aires, Argentina
Martin Palermo scored 112 goals in 216 senior team appearances for Boca Juniors in Argentina, but this header he scored at the Bombonera has to come up in any conversation regarding the best headers of the past few decades. Not only does he score from just inside Velez’s half, but as you can see from the scoreline, his improbable header gave Boca the late 3-2 advantage in the match. We just want to be alone with this clip for a while, we’ll understand if you feel a similar type of way.
