Eric Cantona was a striker, first and foremost. He could toe-poke them in from six yards with the very best of them. He could pop up at the back post with a neat little header. He could bundle one in off his arse if he needed to...

But he could also do things no other striker could. He could send a volley in off the crossbar with the power of an atomic bomb. He could chip it like Phil Mickelson onto the 18th green. He could bend it like Beckham long before Becks himself.
