Former Chelsea and Liverpool man Joe Cole may be past his prime at 34, but he can still deliver. Just look at what he did for the Tampa Bay Rowdies as they beat Puerto Rico FC 3-0 on Saturday. Here's the video from the CBS Sports Network broadcast of the game as Cole made it 1-0 just 10 minutes into Saturday's match with a sublime bicycle kick goal.

That is fantastic execution. He took a great touch to set up the bike and delivered with pace. We so often see bikes miss by wide margins, but this was spot on.
A fantastic, world class goal. But, it isn't his best goal ever. The 2006 World Cup strike for England against Sweden is still the tops.
