Irish 7-Year-Old Starts And Finishes Goal Of Pure Football Genius

Irish 7-Year-Old Starts And Finishes Goal Of Pure Football Genius
By PJ Browne Updated

Playing it out from the back. Some silky touches. A finish which is calm, inventive and spectacular. This goal has a lot going for it.

Sean McDonnell, playing for Crumlin United was the scorer.

We'll let the Crumlin United Facebook page paint the picture.

Take a bow Sean McDonnell. This 7-year-old boy started and finished one of the best goals you are likely to see all year. He calmly beat his first opponent by controlling the ball, then a clever drag back allowed his team mate Sam Cowzer to dribble forward and release the ball back to Sean with sole roll. Sean had a quick look at the keeper and decided he could catch him off his line so he chipped the ball up and caught it sweet on the volley and it dipped over the keeper's head and into the net.

The goal was not the product of simply an exceptionally talented young footballer. The DDSL also deserve some praise. According to Crumlin, these kids play in a format which has no league table or points at stake - creating an environment in which the players feel free to express themselves.

Goal of the Season !!!!!Take a bow Sean McDonnell. This 7 year old boy started & finished one of the best goals you are likely to see all year. He calmly beat his 1st opponent by controlling the ball, then a clever drag back allowed his team mate Sam Cowzer to dribble forward & release the ball back to Sean with sole roll. Sean had a quick look at the keeper and decided he could catch him off his line so he chipped the ball up & caught it sweet on the volley & it dipped over the keepers head and into the net ;)))This creative play & skill is a product of good coaching & a great decision by the DDSL to have no league tables & points at stake for our younger players. This allows the kids to express themselves without the fear of losing a game at an age were it doesn't matter. Hopefully the next Robbie Keane is only around the corner ;)))Many thanks to Tanya Sheridan for the footage !!!PLEASE SHARE THIS POST ⚽️⚽️⚽️
