Miroslav Stoch (born 19 October 1989) is a Slovak international footballer. His father realized his talent at an early age and placed him with his local club's academy Nitra.

He saw off competition from Neymar's mazy dribble from the halfway line and Falcao's extravagant bicycle kick to win the award for his sweet volley from just outside the penalty box. Chelsea had scouts in one of the international competitions he played in and offered him a trial around the same time that Nicewas about to sign him. He duly impressed and was signed by Chelsea's youth academy in 2006. He was a regular for the under-18s in the 2006–07 season and scored 11 goals.
