UEFA have posted 60 of the best goals in European competition on their website as part of their 60th anniversary celebrations and a Celtic goal has made it into that list.

The goal was during Celtic’s home tie against Manchester Utd on the 21st November 2006 – Shunsuke Namakura scored an absolute belter of a free kick to send Celtic through to the last 16 of the Champions League with a game to spare.

Nakamura was famous for his set pieces and lit up Celtic Park and away grounds on a regular basis with free kicks like this.

Other goals on the list include Zidane’s goal against Leverkusen at Hampden in the Champions League final and Thierry Henry for Arsenal.

Here is that special moment along with all the other goals on the UEFA website.
