The UEFA Champions League has been around since 1955. Though it previously has been known as the European Champion Clubs' Cup or the European Cup and the annual tournament's format was tweaked in 1992, it boasts an incredibly rich history full of the greatest clubs and players in recent soccer history.
From Di Stefano to Zidane, Puskas to Messi, it has featured goals from the most talented superstars in the sport.
But in honor of the "Exhibition of Champions" currently on display at Wembley Stadium—featuring, among other items, "prize exhibits including inspirational Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard’s 2005 captain’s armband, David Beckham’s jersey from Manchester United’s nail-biting victory in 1999 and Graeme Souness’ three winners’ medals from ’78, ’81 and ’84"—we wanted to put together some of the greatest of those goals.
Here are the 11 best free-kick goals in UEFA Champions League history...or at least since 1992.
Enjoy them and be sure to let us know which you think deserves top billing.
