This week it will be 11 years since the Premier Leagues all time leading goal scorer netting his final and 260th league goal. Lets reminisce about the legendary no.9 with 9 of his greatest goals.
Everton, December 2002
Start as we mean to go on, here is the goal that Shearer thinks is his best ever.
Netherlands, June 1996
Euro 96 saw Alan claim the golden boot with 5 goals. Here he is finishing off a brilliant team move in a 4-1 thrashing on Holland.
Queens Park Rangers, November 1994
Here he is in his Rovers days with a signature long range thunderbolt that crashed in off the bar. Not a bad way to complete a hat-rick at well. Blackburn went on to win the League.
Manchester United, November 2002
When you score your 100th Premier League goal this is how you do it!
Aston Villa, November 2001
Shearer wasn't all about the power shot with this beautifully placed volley across goal into the top corner. 🎯
Chelsea, April 2004
Another insane long ranger which ended Chelsea's title aspirations under Ranieri.
Portugal April 1998
And another volley ...
Sunderland, September 2002
Shearer loved a goal against Sunderland and here he is settling a Tyne-Wear derby.
Sunderland, April 2006
Shearer's last ever competitive goal and fittingly it was against arch enemies Sunderland.
What a player, a true footballing icon!
