Albion's World Cup of Goals begins this week!

In association with our Matchday Live partners Snickers UK, you can relive some great goals from the likes of Jiri Skalak, Rohan Ince, Willie Irvine and Matt Sparrow, as they face up against Glenn Murray, Steve Sidwell, Vicente and Bruno. 

The only place to make sure you vote for your favourites is on club’s Twitter feed during the month of April.

The glorious goals include Sidwell’s effort from the halfway line against Bristol City in 2016 to Anthony Knockaert’s sublime winner against Crystal Palace in 2019. They will find themselves up against some of the most important or memorable goals in the club’s history - 48 goals have been selected and they will be split into 12 groups of four. 

From April 1st, fans will then have the chance to vote for the best goal in each group with the winning strike progressing to the quarter-final stage. The three-goal final is due to take place on Wednesday 29th April.

Voting will be open from 12pm to 7pm on weekdays for the group stages, and from 10am to 5pm on weekends. 

Here are the groups:
