Palacios' special solo strike

Next Story

Remember Wilson Palacios? That midfielder that was really highly rated once upon a time. No? Well maybe you will after seeing his fine individual goal for national side Honduras.

The 29-year-old's career has been something of a disaster since signing for Stoke City on the final day of the summer 2011 transfer window, and he has only made 33 appearances since.

This has been a big nose dive since the heady heights of his spells at Wigan and the start of his Tottenham tenure, where he was regarded as one of the best defensively minded midfielders in the Premier League and was linked with a whole host of top European clubs.

Palacios' international career has been more successful however, as he has racked up 87 caps and played in the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

And although he isn't renowned for his goalscoring, the forgotten Stoke man notched a beauty in his country's World Cup qualifier with Panama.

Exchanging a one-two with teammate and driving into the box, Palacios then received the ball back and proceeded to nutmeg a shocked defender before chipping the ball delightfully over the goalkeeper.
