The Sweeper: One of the college kids or the pro?

10/09/2013, 10:45pm CDT

Welcome to The Sweeper, an occasional feature on Wisconsin Soccer Central. We sweep up interesting news and highlights from soccer across the world and bring it to you.

First of all, let's be clear: All three of the goals shown below are phenomenal.

They all have a high degree of difficulty and are things of beauty that most of us could only dream of ever scoring.

But which one do you think is the best? Take a look at all three and vote in the poll below.

Paul Yonga, UW

Free kick, 35 yards out on the right side. Yonga fired it into the side netting, upper 90, at the far post, giving the Badgers a 2-0 lead en route to a 3-2 win over Drake on Tuesday night at the McClimon Complex in Madison. "There's not a goalkeeper in the world that stops that shot," UW coach John Trask said of the goal by the senior defender.

James Murphy, Michigan

Channeling Thierry Henry's classic goal for Arsenal against Manchester United from 2000, Murphy took a pass, flicked it up to himself and volleyed it to the far post for the lone goal in the Wolverines' 1-0 win over Ohio State on Sunday.

Camilo, Vancouver Whitecaps

The Brazilian scored his second goal in 3 minutes in spectacular style, with a side scissors kick from just inside the box to give Vancouver a 2-2 draw with the Portland Timbers - keeping the Whitecaps' Major League Soccer playoff hopes alive.
