There is nothing quite like an inspired bit of skill or a big finish to brighten up your week, and here at Shoot! we are always on the look out for the best to bring you.

This evening, Shoot! would like to wish former Ghana international striker Tony Yeboah many happy returns as he celebrates his 52nd birthday today.

To mark the ex-forward’s latest milestone, we decided to publish a throwback post on his memorable strikes for Leeds United.

Tony Yeboah scores against Liverpool.

Yeboah joined The Whites from Eintracht Frankfurt in January 1995 in a deal worth around £3.4m, going on to score 32 goals in just 66 appearances in all competitions.

Voted Leeds’ Player of the Year in 1996, the Ghanaian is a cult hero at Elland Road following his wondergoals in a white shirt.

Watch the video above to admire his venomous volley against Liverpool and spectacular strike against Wimbledon during the 1995-96 campaign, with the latter strike being awarded Goal of the Season.

Yeboah also became the first foreign player to score a league hat-trick after his treble against Ipswich Town in April 1995.
