Tony Yeboah’s volley for Leeds United against Liverpool is one of my favourite goals ever. It was called out in Sheridan Bird and Pete Donaldson’s favourite football shirt interviews. There were so many things to love about it.
The Leeds United shirt was class
The ball didn’t touch the ground
Pass from Gary Speed. Long ball by Tony Dorigo. Nod down and volley into the top corner. The little step back Yeboah took was class.
Yeboah’s celebration was brilliant
Arms outstretched and wagging his finger before being mobbed by his teammates.
David James’s goalie shirt was amazing
The Liverpool goalkeeper sported a shirt that summed up the best of 90s football. Green and purple with big black shoulder pads.
