Word on the street is that headers can lead to brain damage.
Huh? I didn't catch that. I still have a headache from that diving header I took in a Sunday match two months ago.
All joking aside, pulling off a good header is one of the toughest things to do in football. That's why a perfectly-executed diving header is one of the game's most beautiful sights.
We've compiled a list of the best diving headers we saw in 2011. Some of them scored goals. Some didn't.
Some came in big-time matches. Some came in the pub leagues.
All of them were awesome.
