1:D - Gonzalo Higuaín scored the winner for Juventus when they faced Napoli a fortnight ago., 2:C - Not celebrating against a club you have only ever represented while on loan might look silly but Daniel Sturridge made his big breakthrough at Bolton under Owen Coyle and remained in close contact with his former team-mates and manager years after he left., 3:B - Joe Cole only scored three goals for Liverpool. And he only celebrated two of them., 4:D - Shaun Wright-Phillips played for Chelsea 82 times and only scored four goals for them. Maybe he was embarrassed when he scored against them for QPR., 5:B - Jonjo Shelvey scored for Swansea City when he returned to Anfield in 2014. Some of the appreciative fans in the Kop applauded his goal, which was a fine strike. , 6:A - Asmir Begovic earned a place in the Guinness World Records book when he scored from 91.9m against Southampton. Begovic said scoring from so far out was a "cool feeling" but he was also sympathetic to his opposite number, Artur Boruc. "I feel a bit bad for him – it's not a nice thing being on the receiving end of those as a goalkeeper.", 7:C - This was Romelu Lukaku's first goal in the Premier League for a club that owned him, as the 32 he scored before that (for West Brom and Everton) all came while he was on loan from Chelsea., 8:C - Fernando Torres scored for Chelsea against Atlético Madrid in the Champions League semi-final in 2014, but his goal was not enough to help his former club beat his current club. Atlético won the tie 3-1 and went on to play in the final, which they lost 4-1 to Real Madrid., 9:B - Saido Berahino has never played for Gateshead, so he wasn't showing his former fans respect by not celebrating when he scored four goals against them in this FA Cup tie in 2015. The common interpretation at the time was that Berahino wanted to leave West Brom for Liverpool but he didn't quite admit as much in his own statement after the match: "I was just handling business and acting professionally and that’s it. There’s no need for me to explain myself on not celebrating goals. It is what it is." Basically, he wanted to go to Liverpool., 10:C - Denis Law scored 237 goals for Manchester United but this one came against them. This match, the last in a season in which United were relegated, was abandoned in the 85th minute when a number of their fans stormed on to the pitch. Later Law said: "I have seldom felt so depressed in my life as I did that weekend. After 19 years of giving everything I had to score goals, I have finally scored one which I almost wished I hadn't", 11:C - Cristiano Ronaldo came back to Manchester and scored for Real Madrid in the Champions League. “I didn’t celebrate the goal because Old Trafford is a home where I played for six years," said Ronaldo. "I arrived there almost as a kid. It’s not about not celebrating. I want to win but I respect the people of Manchester. It was beautiful and emotional to play against my family.”, 12:B - Tim Howard showed remarkable sympathy for Adam Bogdan when he scored past the Bolton Wanderers goalkeeper in 2012. "It was cruel," said Howard. "I was disappointed from a goalkeepers' union standpoint. You never want to see that happen. It's not nice, it's embarrassing, so I felt for Adam but you have to move on from it.", 13:B - In case you're wondering which of these players scored, it was the very sad one.
