We've all been there. You know, when you overexaggerate slightly and go just a little bit over the top.

Right, so first thing's first, Jamie Vardy did score a Goal of the Season contender during Leicester City's 2-0 victory against Liverpool on Tuesday night.  

After a fine ball from teammate Riyad Mahrez, Vardy struck from around 25-yards out to loop it over Belgium international Simon Mignolet.

Take note, suggesting that the strike was from 25 yards is a fairly accurate assumption to make (we think). 

What's less accurate, however, is claiming that Vardy was around 50 yards out. That's where Iain Dowie comes into focus. We're sorry, Iain, but we just couldn't let this one go.  

Excited Dowie 

So, watching the game while working for Sky Sports, Dowie got a little bit over-excited...

Unfortunately, despite Sky Sports releasing a tweet of Dowie's reaction, they've cut the video moments before the former Crystal Palace manager declared that Vardy could have been as far as 50 yards away from the Liverpool goal. 

Twitter reacts 

But, fear not, social media did not miss Dowie's rather obscure explanation of the strike. Unfortunately for Dowie, Twitter opted troll him and it was all rather amusing.

Here are the best tweets:

Was Vardy's strike the best goal of the season so far? Have your say below!
