    A man dressed as a gorilla wearing a bow tie comes on halfway through and dances with the singer.

    What more can I tell you?

  6. Lorenzo Insigne

    ITALY v Bosnia (Euro 2020 qualifying)

    Italy

    The old Paul Scholes routine. Deep corner to the edge of the box for your best volley man to hit it. Insigne does just that. Get in.

    Insigne takes top spot in semi-final two.

    Steven McNamara: Was Wes Hoolahan Vs Sweden at Euro 2016 in there? Absolute cracker and as for best Eurovision moment, Terry Wogan taking the Michael out of it

    Yes, Wes gets the nod for the Irish. And yes, Terry gets the nod for being a legend.

  9. My Friend

    Jacques Houdek

    Croatia

    View more on youtube

    In contrast to the brilliant simplicity of Modric's volley, our Croatian Eurovision pick has so much going on and contains so many gear changes it is almost impossible to truly stay focused.

    From the moment shiny-faced crooner Jacques Houdek appears on screen looking half hipster Pavarotti, half Michael Jackson Ken doll, you know something special is about to happen.

    Houdek then proceeds to play both parts of a mad duet between the aforementioned tenor and pop prince. It's like watching the Batman villain Two-Face singing in the shower after a breakdown.

    By the time Jacques' three mates weigh in and the fireworks start you're about 90% certain its a dream. It isn't though, and the song managed a respectable 13th place in the 2017 final.

  10. Luke Modric

    CROATIA v Turkey (Euro 2016)

    Croatia

    Ah Luka. Another former Premier League player, currently plying is trade in Madrid.

    This is the kind of strike that would have Alan Partridge whipping out the traction engine comparison again. From the moment the ball loops up you can see what the midfielder is thinking and he is perfectly placed and able to execute a sweet volley into the bottom corner of the net from about 30 yards. Take a bow, son.

    It is another goal from the Euro 2016 finals and the only one in a Group D encounter that helped Croatia finish top.

    Eventual winners Portugal did them in extra-time in the last-16, though.

    I'm not entirely sure we should be showing this video before the watershed.

    All I'll say is that I am pretty certain that is not the most efficient way to scrub your clothes.

    And that is definitely not appropriate attire for butter churning.

  13. Robert Lewandowski

    POLAND v Slovenia (Euro 2020 qualifying)

    Poland

    Sometimes, you just need to get out of a goals way and let people enjoy it. Just watch.

  15. Duncan Laurence

    Our reigning Eurovision champion ladies and gentlemen. And he'll remain so for a little while yet.

    It's hard to concentrate and properly assess this because Duncan keeps hypnotising me with his smoldering gaze down the camera.

    It's a perfectly fine one-man-and-his-piano effort and... Duncan, stop it.

    Where was I? Well, it's well-staged and... oh, Duncan, seriously, with the eyes!

    Ahem... yeah, so the composition is... must... do... Duncan's... bidding.

  16. Georginio Wijnaldum

    NETHERLANDS v Belarus (Euro 2020 qualifying)

    Netherlands

    Georgi loves a hit. An boy does he hit this one. He has to act quick when the ball comes to him 25 yards out but with a slice across the ball he sends it swerving away from the keeper and into the top corner.

    Take a bow, son, you're into the final.

  18. Twiins

    I'm Still Alive

    Slovakia

    View more on youtube

    Our second set of Eurovision twins. These two hammer home the point by being called Twiins. And by having two i's in the middle of twins. Because they're twins.

    Thankfully, one of them wears a peachy-coloured dress and the other one a white one, otherwise you might have thought you'd suffered a vision-distorting head injury.

    I'm not going to lie to you, I skipped though this song from about 20 seconds in, it was that boring. No matter what point in it I clicked on, though, they were singing "I'm still aliiiiiiive" like when a vinyl record is left eerily skipping on loop in a horror film.

    Did I mention they were twins. Sorry, twiins.

  19. Marek Hamsik

    SLOVAKIA v Russia (Euro 2016)

    Slovakia

    He's good isn't he, Marek? He knows it too, with that cupped-ear celebration after scoring this belter. A little turn inside to beat the defender is followed by a pearler of an angled shot, in off the inside of the far post. Lovely stuff.

    He's on the list for your votes - on the right side of this page on desktop and via the vote tab at the top on mobile.
