Who likes goals?

*Oh Deuce! With the score at 0-0, our man wins a PK in injury-time in the West London derby and runs up to take it...

*Wayne Rooney has a flashback with a wonder strike in the Manc derby:

*Samuel Eto'o finds the woodwork as Juve win the Derby of Italy

*While the Uruguayan goal-machine Edinson Cavani nets a Neapolitan brace to stay Serie A's top-gunner

*Barça's La Liga lead is cut to five after being held 1-1 at Sporting Gijon.

*Real Madrid win away in Español.

*In Germany, leaders Dortmund are held in K-Town, 'F.C. Hollywood' put on a show in the Allianz Arena to whip Hoffenheim 4-0, while Cologne enjoy a cruise beside the Rhine:

*Ajax share four on the road at Roda:

*In Portugal, league-leaders Porto win bragging-rights over Braga:

while Benfica winning 3-0 illuminates the Stadium of Light.

*Not every day a goalie scores; but Rogerio Ceni of Sao Paulo has just netted his 98th...

*Still in South America, Godoy Cruz raid La Bombonera to humiliate Boca Juniors.

*And finally, Ronaldo, a Golden Boot winner, twice a World Cup winner, twice European Footballer of the Year, three times FIFA World Player of the Year and the all-time top scorer in the World Cup Finals with 15 goals, retired today. Now this guy liked goals...
