1) Holy Schick! - The top spot has to go to Czech Republic's Patrick Schick, who scored from 49.7 yards out, from near the halfway line, against Scotland. A king ricochet fell his way and when he saw the opposition goalkeeper off his line, he pulled the trigger.
2) The best deliver when most needed! Luka Modric, former Ballon d'Or winner scored an outrageous goal from the outside of his right boot against Scotland. Mateo Kovacic, after receiving the ball from the left flank, threaded it to Modric outside the box. The 35-year-old went for goal from the outside of his right boot and smashed the ball into the net by curling the ball from the inside of his foot.
3) Watch this one on loop! Andreas Christensen scored a stunning goal against Russia to help his side seal their spot in the last 16 of the competition. He charged in from outside the box and absolutely nailed the contact. There was no stopping that.
4) Stop that, if you can! Irfan Kahveci, of Turkey, worked his way inside after manipulating the ball with the sole of his feet. He then rifled the ball into the back of the net. En route to the goal, the ball looped up and then dipped. SENSATIONAL
5) A goal that almost scripted history! Hungary captain Adam Szalai netted a spectacular diving header in their final Group E encounter against Germany. Roland Sallai's cross from the right fell perfectly for Szalai inside the box and the skipper made no mistake. However, his side crashed out of the tournament after a 22- draw with Germany.
