Goal of 2013 contender scored in Ireland

Published Add your comment

Have you heard of Daryl Horgan? No? Well, not to worry - neither had we until this morning before a goal of breathtaking brilliance scored by the Cork City star was brought to our attention on Twitter.

The goal was scored in Cork City's defeat of Drogheda United last Friday, and was a strike fit to grace any league or competition across the world.

Horgan latched onto an errant clearance by the centre-circle, before striding confidently towards the opposition box and leaving two Drogheda defenders on the floor as they were undone by his fleet-footedness.

The 20-year-old, however, saved the best til last as he chipped a quite sublime shot into the top corner of the Drogheda net to secure victory for his team with 20 minutes remaining.

Horgan's strike is surely a contender for the best goal to have been scored in 2013 so far. Have there been any better? Let us know in the comments section below, and well done to 101greatgoals for spotting this first.
