On October 19th 2013 – two years ago today – Jack Wilshere scored arguably the best team goal in football against Norwich in a 4-1 win. The Arsenal star began and finished a move that ended up winning the goal of the season that year, a move that incorporated practically the entire team.
It was filled with quick and fluid one touch passing, with Santi Cazorla and Olivier Giroud involved in the heart of the move. A pair of quick one-two passes between Wilshere and the French forward left the Norwich defence completely static, with the England international left in acres of space to tap home a calm and composed finish.
