Ireland's most famous female footballer is back up to her usual tricks of scoring stunning goals.
The girls in green beat World Cup bound Costa Rica 2-1 in Croatia yesterday, and FIFA Puskas Award 2014 nominee Stephanie Roche scored another great goal from long range. While not quite as spectacular as her famous goal for Peamount United, Roche showed fantastic skill to set herself up for the volley from distance, which she then executed to perfection.
After the match Roche was joined in an interview by goalkeeper Niamh Reid who saved a penalty in the match, and you can see the goal at the 26 second mark:
