    Paul Pogba bagged his fourth goal of the 2015-16 Serie A campaign on Sunday during Juventus' 2-1 win over Sampdoria. As one may expect from the Frenchman, it was a beauty.

    The Juve star's effort makes our weekend golazo ranking along with impressive strikes from England, Scotland, Portugal, Mexico and something very special from Egypt.

    Take a look through the ranking and leave your thoughts in the comments section! 

10. Jefferson Montero (Swansea) vs. Oxford United

    Oxford United pulled off one of the biggest surprises of the FA Cup third round with a deserved 3-2 victory over Swansea City.

    The League Two side scored an excellent goal through Kemar Roofe, but the pick of the bunch was Jefferson Montero's lovely finish to open the scoring in the 23rd minute. 

9. Sergio Aguero (Manchester City) vs. Norwich

    Manchester City made light work of Norwich City in the FA Cup third round, running out 3-0 winners at Carrow Road.

    The finest of the strikes was Sergio Aguero's opener, which saw the Argentinian weave through traffic before poking the ball past John Ruddy.

8. Gonzalo Higuain (Napoli) vs. Frosinone

4 of 11

    Napoli's charge toward the Scudetto took shape on Sunday with their 5-1 win over Frosinone. 

    Gonzalo Higuain struck twice, the second of which was a delightful individual effort that saw the Argentinian pick apart the Frosinone defence.

7. Paul Pogba (Juventus) vs. Sampdoria

5 of 11

    Paul Pogba is no stranger to scoring beautiful goals, and he added another to his highlight reel on Sunday. 

    The Frenchman broke the deadlock against Sampdoria when he controlled a Leonardo Bonucci pass on his chest before twisting his body and firing a volley home

6. Martin Samuelsen (Peterborough) vs. Preston

6 of 11

    Martin Samuelsen scored the best goal of last weekend, and the West Ham United loanee is back in our ranking for his beauty against Preston North End on Saturday.

    The 18-year-old Norwegian opened the scoring for Peterborough United in their 2-0 FA Cup win with a low-driven long-ranger after seven minutes. 

5. Barry McKay (Rangers) vs. Cowdenbeath

    Rangers dismissed Cowdenbeath, 5-1, in the Scottish Cup fourth round on Sunday, and Barry McKay enjoyed a standout game. 

    Just after the half-hour mark, the 21-year-old scored the kind of solo goal Leo Messi would be proud of.

4. Lee Holmes (Exeter) vs. Liverpool

    League Two side Exeter City could earn £1 million from their FA Cup tie with Liverpool after earning a 2-2 draw at St James Park, reported BBC Sport

    Deep into first-half injury time, Lee Holmes put the Devon-based side 2-1 up when his corner went straight in over Adam Bogdan. Olimpico!

    A golazo that earns your team £1 million is definitely worthy of praise.

3. Hector Herrera (Porto) vs. Boavista

9 of 11

    Porto cruised to a 5-0 win over Boavista on Sunday, thanks in part to a very special effort from Hector Herrera.

    The Mexican midfielder converted his fourth league goal of the season when he controlled the brilliantly named Andre Andre's aerial pass and turned to delicately place the ball in the net.

    This game was bookended by classy goals; three minutes into injury time, Danilo Pereira slotted in this excellent backheel volley.

2. German Cano (Leon) vs. Santos Laguna

10 of 11

    The first half of the Liga MX season kicked off over the weekend, with Leon claiming a 2-0 win over Santos Laguna. 

    German Cano scored both goals within a two-minute period, the second of which was a fantastic bicycle kick he teed up for himself. 

1. Shikabala (Zamalek) vs. ENPPI

11 of 11

    Ladies and gentleman, we have a winner.

    Zamalek, who are managed by former Tottenham Hotspur striker Mido, briefly climbed to the top of the Egyptian Premier League on Saturday with a 1-0 win over ENPPI. 

    The goal was an absolute stunner from 29-year-old midfielder Shikabala. 

    The cynics may question this, but comparisons are being made with Roberto Carlos' famous strike for Real Madrid against Tenerife in 1998.
