Today's marquee match on the international scene featured London rivals Tottenham and Arsenal, and a game of that magnitude has a funny way of producing unforgettable goals.

Today's London Derby gave us one such goal, courtesy of 19-year-old Danny Rose, who blasted a long-range shot that helped Tottenham record a 2-1 victory against Arsenal, Spurs first league win over the Gunners since 1999.

If you missed the goal, or just want to see it again, here it is:

  2. you see guys trying volleys like this every week, and rarely are they even on target. that was one very well-taken shot. it’s easy to say almunia should have done better, but i think it blew past him before he knew it was coming (and maybe he was just staying the hell out of the way for the sake of self-preservation).

    just got to throw a little sour grapes in this discussion: cesc’s goal against tottenham earlier this season, where he runs past most of the tottenham players from the center circle… even better. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZrcs-APRvg

  3. Nice shot. Still pales in comparison to Robben’s incredible strike against MU.

    Pedro’s goal against Depor in yesterday’s game was equally if not more impressive.

    Cheers

  4. Great goal. Must be nice to score the best goal of your life as a teenager.

    That game, in beautiful 1080 HD and roaring Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound, is the reason why I love footy. The atmosphere was unbelievable, and every single seat was empty when Bale scored. The stands were a rolling sea of flailing body limbs and thunderous cries.

  5. I think Bentley’s goal last year against Arsenal was just as good, but this was awesome. Redknapp was “forced” to play Danny Rose due to of all the injuries in the squad and look what happens. Brilliant goal. Love it. COYS!!!

  6. Friedel woulda saved it….Dempsey’s was better…blah blah blah. Some American soccer fans can be so annoying. Can’t you just give the guy credit for a great goal without comparing it to a USA player and trying to convince yourself and others that it wasn’t really good. Guess what? There are some talented young footballers in England that arent American.

  7. Check out the highlights on The Original Winger site for additional angles, this goal is absolutely stunning, he hit that thing absolutely perfectly, like Tiger woods taking a full swing at a golf ball in mid-air that he’s been bouncing off his wedge and then hitting it in the cup, that’s what I’d liken it to. The commentator says it best, that “Danny Rose could play another 20 years and never, ever score a goal as good as that!” So true.

  8. how is that a wonder goal? he could have hit it anywhere on target with that power and it would have gone in because Almunia was scrambling to get up. Dempsey’s wonder strike was more impressive.

  9. Tell me that kid didn’t practice that every single day when he was about 11 years old and then run around cheering to himself. He can retire right now.

  10. Seriously?!?! A first time left footed volley from way outside the box and that’s what you categorize as served up on a platter? Why can’t people just acknowledge a great goal without blaming the defense or the keeper all the time. Almunia should have probably secured that ball but it was a world class strike nonetheless.

  11. Again, done in by a debutant. Could someone compile a list of players who have scored their first league goal against Arsenal?

    Danny Rose

    Wayne Rooney with Everton if memory serves me

    I know there are others….anyone?

  12. It was a pretty good goal, but I mean, Almunia gave it to him on a platter. It’s a goal he should have been expected to score, especially with such lackluster defense…
