According to him, the strike against the USA at the 2010 World Cup stands tall.

He was, however, quick to point out that most of his exceptional strikes were not captured on camera for the world to see.

People saw the World Cup goal against the USA, people saw my goal against England [but] there are a lot of goals I scored that the camera couldn’t capture.

“For now, though, I’ll say the goal against the United States in 2010 [is my greatest],” he quipped.
