Maxi Rodriguez: Argentina vs. Mexico, 2006

With the game deep into Extra-Time and the dreaded Penalty Shoot-Out looming it was going to take an act of brilliance to decide this tie and Maxi Rodriguez provided just that.

A sublime 30 yard cross-field pass by Juan Pablo Sorin was controlled perfectly on the chest by Rodriguez. His work wasn't done yet, after a perfect chest control the ball sat up nicely for a ferocious left foot volley into the far corner past the helpless Oswaldo Sanchez. A technically brilliant goal worthy of winning any game.
