Saw a tweet were a man was naming his top 3 over rated goals of all time. They were Beckham against Wimbledon, Van Persie's header against Spain and Beckham's free kick against Greece. .
One that I always thought was over rated was a Ronaldo free kick at home to Portsmouth. It won goal of the season that year I think.

i think beckhams against greece was top notch , it was the last minutes of a do or die game and he delivered , 

pretty much all of ronaldos frees against also ran teams were lauded as the best goal ever.

Beckham's free kick against Greece 100%, Mo Salah's Puskas award winner last year.

For some reason, I've never thought Zidanes goal for Real Madrid v Bayer Leverkusen in the 2002 Champions League final is as good as it's made out to be. I know his technique was excellent but it just does nothing for me. Maybe it's the 1/2 dive from the keeper or the stupid looking green nets they used.

Spot on, forgot about that. A shot from inside the box

Beckham's would have been top-notch if that wasn't his fifth or sixth free-kick from similar range in the match!  Similar to Wilkinson's 'heroics' in the rugby. 
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

The Andrea Schurrle goal at Burnley this season was over rated.
Good goal but not a goal of the season contender.

Geoff Hurst's third goal in the 1966 world cup final. It looks spectacular and it's an iconic piece of commentary, but he's admitted it was very lucky.

 "With the famous fourth goal, his thinking was he'd just hit it as hard as possible ... You can see him looking up. ... he admitted hitting the back of the net was the last thing on his mind."

Di Canio's scissorkick for West Ham.

Shane Longs goal versus Germany. It luckily bounced up from the ground into his shin otherwise he would have lost control. Good shot though.

George Weah vs Verona, 100% should have lost the ball at the halfway line

Or Van Persie. That was sensational.

As was the (admittedly arguably offside) goal in 2013 in the game that won the league, where he volleyed it from over his shoulder from 30-odd yards, from Rooney's pass. I think it West Ham and the game finished 3-0. I think it was the first goal.

It was Bruce Millington the editor of the racing post and Palace fan who gave those 3, Beckham (2) and Van Persie.
Don't agree that any of them were over rated TBH.
He said he just had to stick his head on the ball for the Van Persie one
