The greatest goal NEVER scored - your turn to post

Remembering some of the greatest goals ever is always nice. Thinking of an overhead kick, a long-range free-kick, a daring shot or any sort of goal that captures our hearts and memories has always been a sort of source for our love of the game. But what about the ones that got away? The ones that could have become among the greatest goals ever scored.

Today, I’m asking you - either as a reply to this post, or
the Facebook page, or the Twitter page - to recall the greatest goal NEVER scored. A miss so glorious that the headlines would have been raving about this goal for ages in the same way they still do about Maradona’s second goal vs England in the 1986 World Cup.

Here are my two favorite goals NEVER scored:

1) Pele vs Uruguay during the 1970 World Cup. I wasn't alive when this happened, but I've seen it so many times and 9 times out of 10, you'd expect Pele to finish this. The technique to blindside a keeper is one that not to many player would dare do today:


2 - Eric Cantona vs Chelsea at Stamford Bridge during the 1993-94 season. Many people have forgotten about this, or never even seen this before, but as a kid when I saw him pull this off I tried for quite a while to do something similar (obviously on a much smaller pitch and obviously not being able to):
