West Brom Albion’s Morgan Amalfitano scored in the second minute against Cardiff City with an unbelievable lob from the right side. Did he mean to? Or was it a cross which went inside? Just a few weeks back Wayne Rooney scored a 55 yard wonder goal against West Ham. Was this goal better than Rooney’s? Well, it’s certainly a goal of the season contender.
Sky presenter Paul Merson thinks it was better than Rooney’s.
That is not just it though; the goal is also significant for the time in which it was scored.
