On This Day: Paolo Di Canio's historic Wimbledon volley


Taking a look back at a classic West Ham United moment on this day in history, in association with RoadX Tyres...

Paolo Di Canio scored one of the iconic goals in West Ham United history on this day in 2000.

The Italian's scissor-volley against Wimbledon has gone down in Hammers folklore for its spectacular audacity.

Di Canio struck inside nine minutes at the Boleyn Ground, launching himself into the air to send Trevor Sinclair's raking cross past Neil Sullivan and inside the far post.

Debutant Freddie Kanoute doubled the Irons' advantage on 59 minutes, meaning former Hammer Michael Hughes' late goal was a mere consolation.
