Weekend boot spots: Wonder goals and shorts off moments

We have taken a look back at the previous weekends games, where we have collected the best boot spots in one article, for your reading pleasure. There was anything from wonder goals, hattricks and blackouted boots, to shortless celebrations and Danish players strutting their stuff. You can find it all here and should you have anything to add, you can do so in the comment-section down below.

Eric Abidal (Barcelona) – Adidas F50 Adizero Black/Green/White We start off with a joyous reunion and comeback in Spain, where the French left back, Eric Abidal, made his return to first team action at Barcelona. This was after several months on the sideline, due to illness connected with his ongoing struggle with cancer. He has up until his comeback been training in a pair of Adidas F50 Adizero and this was also the boot he used on his return match, so we can therefore definitively write him off as a Tiempo-player.

Cesc Fabregas (Barcelona) – Puma Powercat 1.12 White/Red/Blue Custom The Catalans are leading the pack by some margin now and this week they had to do without their talismanic star, Lionel Messi, but what does that matter when you have Fabregas. With his Puma Powercat 1.12 White/Red/Blue, which by the way have a custom Puma King stud-configuration, he scored three goals and assisted one too. Bing, bang, bosh, how hard is this football business anyway?

Nabil El Zhar (Levante) – Nike GS II ACC White/Black Last seasons big surprise in La Liga have not quite been able to live up to last years performances, but for quite a while they looked like grabbing 3 points from Real Madrid. As Nabil El Zhar's expression probably suggests, this didn't happen in the end and this was despite him wearing a pair of Nike GS II ACC White/Black with a blackouted ACC-logo on the lateral side.

Christian Eriksen (Ajax) – Nike Mercurial Vapor IX ACC Neptune Blue/Volt-Tide Pool Blue Last week the Danish commentators were going nuts over Viktor Fischer and his wonder goal for Ajax Amsterdam, but this week it was another Danish prodigy strutting his stuff. You are tempted to think that Frank de Boer was using his Playstation controller and had Eriksen elegantly finesse the ball in true Fifa-style, right into the top corner.

Lasse Schöne (Ajax) – Nike Mercurial Vapor IX ACC Neptune Blue/Volt-Tide Pool Blue Previously mentioned Eriksen did however not run with all the glory, as Lasse Schöne was also in quite the playing mood. Schöne shone throughout the game with both goals and assists and you have to think that the Dutch champions are quite pleased with their Danish players. Schöne, like his compatriot, wore the new Nike Mercurial Vapor IX ACC Neptune Blue/Volt-Tide Pool Blue.

Mirko Vucinic (Juventus) – Nike Mercurial Vapor IX ACC Neptune Blue/Volt-Tide Pool Blue The Montenegrin striker has before been a avid user of Nike's Tiempo-collection, but since the Vapor IX hit the shelves, he has been playing in the new Vapor IX ACC Neptune Blue/Volt-Tide Pool Blue. He scored twice in the weekend, where the first will probably be remembered most for his celebration, where he pulled off his shorts and went nuts. (No innuendo intended) Oookay?

Antonio Di Natale (Udinese) – Asics Lethal Tigreor 5 Black/Green/White The Italian spearhead is almost impossible to stop from scoring and in this weekends game he once again proved that he can score on half chances, as well as, on sitters. With his faithful Asics Lethal Tigreor 5 Black/Green/White he slammed an elegant first time volley behind the keeper, who didn't know what had happened before it was too late.

Craig Bellamy (Cardiff City) – Warrior Sports Prototype Blackout For the American brand Warrior Sports the controversial Welshman was the first man signed to their roster and even though he no longer is the biggest star in their ranks, they still remain loyal to him. He has previously been given custom boots and colourways and now it would appear that he is testing something new from Warrior. What could it be?

Bastian Schweinsteiger (Bayern Munich) – Adidas F50 Adizero Yellow/Black An elegant backheel from this gentleman was all it took to secure the German championship for the Bavarians, who smashed all records and won the league with six rounds left. The goal was scored with his Adidas F50 Adizero Yellow/Black, which he has kept a hold of, but this is something we are used to from Schweinsteiger, who hates changing boots.

Moussa Dembélé (Tottenham) – Nike Tiempo Legend IV ACC Sunburst/White/Total Crimson The Belgian midfielder has almost represented every Nike silo; in his Fulham days and early Tottenham time he wore the T90 Laser IV, where after he jumped in a pair CTR360 Maestri III and now it would seem he is changing again. This time it was the turn of the Nike Tiempo Legend IV ACC Sunburst/White/Total Crimson, which leaves only the Mercurial-collection to go.

Emmanuel Adebayor (Tottenham) – Nike Mercurial Vapor IX ACC Neptune Blue/Volt-Tide Pool Blue It looks like Nike have knicked themselves a previous Adidas profile in the shape of the Togolese striker Emmanuel Adebayor. The forward used to be a wearer of the Adidas F50 Adizero, but after a bit of a goal drought, it would seem he is blaming his boots. It would however appear he may have had a point, as he against Everton scored in his Nike Mercurial Vapor IX ACC Neptune Blue/Volt-Tide Pool Blue.

Jem Karacan (Reading) – Nike CTR360 Maestri III ACC White/Total Crimson-Black So far both colours released from the CTR360-collection have gotten player backing and now it would appear that the theme continues. Nike recently unveiled two new colourways, but until now it has primarily been the Fresh Mint colourway getting attention. This is something Jem Karacan from Reading would like to change, as he played in his Nike CTR360 Maestri III ACC White/Black/Total Crimson in this weekends game.

Shane Long (West Bromwich) – Puma Evospeed 1 White/Silver German Mario Gomez recently tore up his contract with Puma and while he still was part of the Puma-team, this colourway was exclusive to him. This boot has been picked up by Albion striker Shane Long and that is only something we can applaud, as we think it is one of the classiest colourways from 2013.

Matthew Lowton (Aston Villa) – Nike Tiempo Legend IV ACC Sunburst/White/Total Crimson It would appear that The Villans are finally realising the severity of their current position in the Premier League, as they have, in the last couple of weeks, upped their game significantly. They, deservedly, thumped Stoke away from home, but in true Villa style still managed to make things interesting by letting in an equaliser, just before a delicious volley from Lowton and his Nike Tiempo Legend IV ACC Sunburst/White/Total Crimson turned the tie in their favour again. Can Aston Villa save themselves from relegation?

There were boot spots from just about every big league in Europe this week, but unfortunately none from the French league this time round. Did you spot something from Ligue 1, which we missed? What do you otherwise think about this round of spots? Let us know your opinion in the box down below.
