There is nothing quite as brutally effective and equally beautiful as a cleanly volleyed goal.

Jamie Vardy treated us to one for the scrap book last night in Leicester's 2-0 win over Liverpool and it's not like we need an excuse to trawl through first time volleys of football past.

So as you scroll down the page, indulge yourself in an alluring aspect of the beautiful game.
