It might be early days, but Robbie Benson has just scored a contender for Goal of the Season. 

The Dundalk man hit the ball on the volley just inside the box after 18 minutes of the Irish side's Legia Warsaw to give the minnows the lead on the night, bringing them back to just a 2-1 deficit on aggregate. 

Dundalk were expecting a hostile atmosphere as they travelled to Poland but that clearly didn't put off Benson, who kept his cool to smash home the screamer.

And whatever happens now, they can look back on this campaign with pride, and no-one will be forgetting this goal for a while. 

Take a look:

Warsaw made things doubly difficult for themselves after Adam Hloušek was sent off for a second booking.

However, it was undoubtedly Benson that delivered the biggest moment of drama.
