Paolo Di Canio's 1999/2000 'Goal of the Season' is one of ten goals nominated for the Premier League's '20 Seasons' celebrations.
The Premier League is 20 years old this year and, to highlight the occasion, is asking visitors to its website at premierleague.com to nominate their favourite moments.
There are four categories in which visitors to the site may vote - Best Match, Best Goal, Best Celebration and Best Save.
Unsurprisingly the categories are dominated by the league's major players although Di Canio's wonder strike against Wimbledon is one of the ten goals nominated in the Best Goal category.
Meanwhile, Ian Wright and Neil Ruddock's goal celebration - that mimicked Paolo Di Canio's famous pushing-over of referee Paul Alcock - is one of the ten nominees in the 'Best Celebration' category.
