Great Goals: Alan Shearer – NEWCASTLE UNITED vs. Everton (December 2002)

The Premier League’s all-time leading goalscorer has scored a range of fine goals over the years from a variety of angles in many different methods. Alan Shearer was the main man at Newcastle United and this was one of his very best.

Trailing 1-0 to Everton with just four minutes remaining, it looks like the Magpies’ have run out of ideas. They started playing long balls to substitute Shola Ameobi. His aerial presence meant he was able to knock the ball down to Shearer. Sitting up nicely for the no.9 striker, he took a chance and smashed an unstoppable volley into the Everton goal.

Craig Bellamy completed the turnaround and Newcastle won the match 2-1. The comeback though was inspired by Shearer’s stunner.
