This majestic Zola goal for Chelsea v Wimbledon will make your lunch break

In the late 90s when Wembley was being rebuilt FA Cup semi finals were played all over the place.  Villa Park, Old Trafford and Hillsborough. In 1996/97 FA Cup semi-final Chelsea played Wimbledon at Highbury.

There was something odd about seeing 2 teams that play in blue in a stadium with Arsenal red.  Chelsea dominated and Zola scored one of the best FA cup semi final goals ever seen.

Di Matteo played it forward and Zola’s first touch was majestic.  Running one way, he flicked the ball in the other direction past Chris Perry, turned, took a touch and blasted it past Neil Sullivan in goal.  Class. Was it Zola’s best goal for Chelsea?
