Norwich City haven’t found scoring goals very easy in the Premier League this season.
Going into their relegation six-pointer against Watford on Friday evening, Dean Smith’s side had found the back of the net just ten times.
That’s a dire record, but the Canaries did make it 11 goals scored at the very start of the second half at Vicarage Road to go 1-0 ahead.
American forward Josh Sargent was the man who got it and his first ever Premier League strike was certainly a memorable one.
The former Werder Bremen man produced one of the most skilful finishes you’ll see anywhere in Europe this season to convert Teemu Pukki’s cross.
It really was shades of Olivier Giroud versus Crystal Palace…

What. A. Goal.

VAR did take a look at for an apparent foul by Pukki in the build-up, but it was eventually given – which was the correct decision.
