Stoke City man scores classy lob

Next Story →

Kenwyne Jones' Stoke City career may have stagnated slightly in the last couple of seasons after a promising start, but on the evidence of this video, his international career still has a lot of legs.

Having signed for the club on a record £8m fee from Sunderland in 2010, Jones hasn't exactly set the world alight at the Britannia with just 26 goals in 110 appearances for the club.

However, for minnows Trinidad & Tobago, Jones is the star man and fulcrum of the team as well as their inspirational captain. The bruising striker proved his worth to the nation with a wonderful lob in a match against Saudi Arabia yesterday.

Capitalising on some indecision from the Saudi defenders, Jones ran onto a bouncing ball about 35 yards out and, spotting the keeper off his line, proceeded to loft the ball over the stranded custodian into the empty net.

It was a fantastic finish, the like of which has rarely been seen during his three years with Stoke. Presumably the reason for this is that they are always trying to pass the ball into the net instead?

Have a look at the stunning finish in the video above.
