Videos: Incredible two-man bicycle kick and great overhead kick by Trevor Sinclair for QPR

Wayne Rooney's goal against Man Citeh at the weekend was a great goal but the hype surrounding it has been stupid. Best goal ever? Seriously?

Anyhoo, here are a couple clips of other goals scored from bicycle kicks that were better than Rooney's.

Scott Sinclair for QPR 1997
The first is by Trevor Sinclair (remember him?) for QPR way back in 1997 and pooh-poohs all over Wayne Rooney's from a great height.

Incredible tandem kick
The second clip is of a tendem kick - two players on the same team simultaneously overhead-kicking the ball into the net (yes, you read that correctly!) in a match between Gimnasia La Plata and Boca Juniors. This must have been a tricky one for the Argentinian version of the dubious goals panel to sort out.

I looked for a clip of an Arsenal player scoring from an overhead kick but sadly couldn't find one. Anyone remember an Arsenal player ever scoring one?
