Ireland's under 19 squad defeated Sweden 1-0 yesterday in their European Championship qualifier with the winning goal coming from Liam Kelly (pictured above). The midfielder hit an outrageous lob from the halfway line that left the Swedish goalkeeper stranded.

Kelly hails from Meath and he plays his football for Reading. His twitter account (@L_Kelly95) was buzzing with news of the goal.
He also has previous for scoring brilliant goals.
