“A cross came and they had a Brazilian striker called Cleverson, who flicked it up in the air,” said Owen, who played in the 8-0 defeat in the Serbian capital.

“George Horan and Greg Strong both went up for the ball, easily thinking they were going to head it away but by the time they got up in the air, he’d overhead kicked it into the back of the net. It was a brilliant goal. Well worth watching.”

Former Rhyl team-mate and now Connah’s Quay captain Horan agreed and said: “That overhead kick is one of the things I remember from the games against Partizan. The ball came into the box and by the time we’d had chance to think about clearing it, the lad has scored that goal.”

But what are the greatest volleys or overhead kicks ever scored?

Leader Sports Editor Nick Harrison puts goals from former Welsh internationals Mark Hughes and Ian Edwards at the top of his hit-list.

“I was lucky enough to be at both games. Sparky’s scissor kick in front of a packed Kop was the highlight of Wales’ 3-0 win over Spain in April 1985.

“Sat in the Turf balcony, I was level with Hughes as he produced the kind of strike that literally took your breath away. He should have put a trademark on it because he was definitely the master when it came to volleying the ball.

“It was the same with Edwards’ venomous volley for Wrexham at Derby’s Baseball Ground in 1980. Les Cartwright sent over the cross and Edwards just smashed it first time into the top corner. It ended up being in the top three goals of the season on Match of the Day!

“Others that rank high are Marco van Basten for Holland against Russia in 1988, Leeds’ Tony Yeboah against Liverpool in 1995 and, Gareth Bale’s goal for Real Madrid, again against Liverpool in the 2018 Champions League final.”

Deputy Sports Editor Tom Norris enjoys those acrobatic efforts that are most pleasing on the eye.

“Trevor Sinclair’s overhead kick against Barnsley for QPR in the FA Cup is one that immediately springs to mind. The ball towards Sinclair was at best filed in the ‘hopeful’ drawer, but the soon to be England winger turned it into a great assist.

“Running away from goal, Sinclair decided that an overhead kick from the edge of the penalty area was the only way to go, and as the ball crashed into the net after leaving the Barnsley keeper a spectator, how right he was.

“Peter Crouch’s stunning effort against Manchester City has to be mentioned. I heard this goal on the radio and thought they might have been overplaying how good it was, but wow. On the angle of the penalty area with nowhere to go, Crouch controls a header waist height before finding the far corner of Joe Hart’s net.

“Wayne Rooney’s angry volley against Newcastle is shortlisted, along with his memorable overhead effort against Manchester City and Robin Van Persie’s versus Charlton, with Paul Scholes’ effort versus Aston Villa leading the way.

“The technique from Scholes to catch a ball dropping from that high perfectly and crash it in off the crossbar from 25 yards is just too good not to include.”

Wrexham reporter Richard Williams has two memorable goals from former Reds stars in his top-strike selection.

“Every Wrexham player who scores against Chester becomes a hero but Karl Connolly’s volley - in front of the Reds fans at the Deva back in 1997 - was something else.

“It was an FA Cup tie and screened live on Sky and Connolly was awesome that night.

“Connolly’s strike was good but maybe not as spectacular as player-boss Andy Morrell’s screamer at home to Forest Green in 2013.

“I’ll go for Tony Yeboah’s goal for Leeds and Paolo Di Canio’s volley for West Ham against Wimbledon.”

Chester reporter Dan Heald - an ardent Aston Villa fan - showed some bias in shortlisting the greatest volleys of all time.

“Matt Lowton for Villa at Stoke stands out for a few reasons.

“First of all, it’s the audacity shown by a full-back to attempt a strike like that so late in the game.

“Secondly, it’s the perfect execution of his attempt - chesting down a lofted clearance 30 yards out before sending an unstoppable right-footed effort beyond Asmir Begovic and into the top corner.

“Thirdly, the context. Villa were struggling badly under Paul Lambert at the time and looking to fend off relegation. This goal sent the travelling Villa faithful into raptures and inspired a 3-1 victory that bought us some valuable breathing space that season.

“Honourable mentions go to Zidane’s left-footed piledriver against Leverkusen in the 2002 Champions League final, Van Basten’s wonder-strike in the 88 Euro’s, and James Rodriguez’s effort for Colombia against Uruguay in the 2014 World Cup.”
