Breaking Down Wes Hoolahan's Utterly Outrageous Goal For Norwich Yesterday

The debate regarding Wes Hoolahan's inclusion in the Irish team has long since gone past a debate regarding solely his selection; the inclusion of Wes is a kind of mode of thinking: that the Irish can play, when we want to. There's a kind of majesty in Wes, that a diminutive Irishman can glide around a football pitch with the ball stuck to his feet in easy contemplation.

Irish fans could exult in another piece of Hoolahan sorcery yesterday afternoon, as Hoolahan twisted the blood of Rotherham defenders before finally slotting home a goal to help ensure a 3-1 victory, sending the Canaries to the top of the Championship in the process.

Here it is, in all its intricate beauty.

When the ball comes near the area, Wes comes alive 

He ghosts into the space between defenders...

...and is already a move ahead in his head. What a turn! 

The turn leaves the hapless defender skating away in the wrong direction 


Now he's about to pull the trigger....

...but instead sends another defender out for the Herald for good measure 


And then nonchalantly rolls it home


Heck, here it is in full flow via incredible slo-mo footage:


Nice one, Wes.


We can play when we want.
