Bressan and Anastasi among your top scorers

Goals from Mauro Bressan and Pietro Anastasi are causing a stir in the poll for the best goals scored in UEFA competition, but there is time to vote for your favourites.

As we reach 50 days in the voting to find the best goals scored in UEFA competition, strikes from Mauro Bressan and Pietro Anastasi have enjoyed a surge of interest among UEFA.com users.

Bressan's outrageous overhead kick in ACF Fiorentina's 3-3 UEFA Champions League draw against FC Barcelona from 1999, and Anastasi's turn and shot against Yugoslavia in the final of the 1968 UEFA European Championship are among 60 superb strikes chosen in the poll, which marks UEFA's 60th anniversary.

However, while voters in Italy have clearly been out in force in the last seven days, fans from elsewhere may yet discover the brilliance of such scintillating strikes as Pierre van Hooijdonk's 2002 UEFA Cup final free-kick for Feyenoord or Maniche's UEFA EURO 2004 curler against the Netherlands before voting closes on 30 September.
