Irish football player scores goal of the year?


Irish league side Dundalk’s Jordan Flores may not be a household name, but he’s being considered as an early front-runner for the prestigious Puskas Award, thanks to his stunning volley against Shamrock Rovers.

Flores connected beautifully with a Michael Duffy’s driven corner to slam the ball into the top corner of the net for one of the most spectacular strikes you’ll see in a long, long time.

The goal has gone viral, with more than three million fans watching the original video posted to Irish broadcaster RTE’s social media channels, while media outlets across Europe are hailing the strike.

Sky Sports dubbed it a “wonder volley” while respected football website France Football called it “La folle reprise de volee” which translates as “The Crazy Volley.”
