John Egan Scores Massive Sheffield United Goal With Last Gasp Header

Three days after scoring his first Premier League goal, John Egan scored his second for Sheffield United.

It came with one of the last plays of the game as United defeated Wolves 1-0, putting the club on the verge of European football for the first time.

The game had looked as though it was heading for a draw until the Ireland centre-back rose to head home Oliver Norwood's corner in the 93rd minute.

Egan scored his first Premier League goal in Sunday's 1-1 draw with Burnley. After that game, the 27-year-old said his manager Chris Wilder had been hammering home the need for him to score more goals. Egan has certainly responded to that appeal.

"An extremely brave header," said Graeme Souness on Sky Sports after the game.

"There's lots of other heads around and he's attacked it with force. He's picked up the flight early and is determined he's going to get there no matter what."

The victory puts Sheffield United seventh in the table on 51 points, one ahead of Arsenal and one behind Wolves.
