If you’re familiar with Spencer FC and Weller Wanderers, there’s a good chance you’ve already seen this magnificent free-kick scored by Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler at Wembley Stadium on Friday night.

You might have even been inside the stadium and witnessed the goal live.

But for those who don’t know, a match called ‘the Wembley Cup 2016’ final took place at England’s national stadium and there was a pretty decent turnout.

In fact, it was stated on Twitter that more people (18,911, in total) turned out to watch Friday’s match than the 2015-16 FA Vase Final between Hereford and Morpeth Town in May.

For those who want a little more detail about what, exactly, the Wembley Cup is - here’s the information from the promotional blurb, via the Mirror.

What is the Wembley Cup?

"Following the huge success of last year’s inaugural online web series, The Wembley Cup, EE is once again bringing a host of YouTube’s top football content creators together for the most epic football-themed online series in history.

"The exclusive online eight-part series, launching in August, will document the journey of YouTube phenomenon Spencer Owen (Spencer FC) and fellow YouTuber Joe Weller as they battle it out to each build a team strong enough to take the title. Online stars Chris MD and The E2 Freestylers also join the line-up of 25 famous vloggers set to take part."

If that makes sense to you, you’re in the right place - but even if it doesn’t, you’re still in the right place.

A couple of vids from the stands...

Fowler isn’t a vlogger but he was one of the star names involved in Friday night’s match.

And his free-kick, scored from at least 30 yards out, was a thing of absolute beauty.

Fowler at his peak would have been proud of this effort.

Spencer FC win 7-4

For those interested in the final score, it finished 7-4 to Spencer FC.

The fans certainly got their money’s worth, then, although Fowler’s free-kick was probably worth the admission fee alone.
