Watch: UCD U19 Goalkeeper Recreates His Bicycle Kick Goal On Soccer AM

Conor Kearns, goalkeeper for UCD's U19 team, became somewhat of a viral star last weekend when his last-minute bicycle kick goal to equalise against Cork City surfaced on the club's YouTube channel.

It made for great viewing as Kearns flung himself at a dropping ball, found the top corner, and sparked wild celebrations from his teammates, and the video made it as far as Soccer AM who invited him onto the show this weekend.

As well as going in goal for the fan volley competition they run every week, and nearly having his head taken off by Northampton manager Justin Edinburgh's well struck effort, he was also asked to recreate his bicycle kick goal.

And he nailed it.

Fair play to him, performing under pressure on live TV, it's very easy to make a tit out of yourself when attempting a bicycle but it's clearly something he's done more than once.

Soccer AM also showed Kearns' original bicycle kick with some outlandish American commentary.

He has since tweeted his relief at having successfully made the shot, and got some love from his club as well.
