Watch: Wes Hoolahan Rolls Back The Years With Wonderful Solo Goal

Watch: Wes Hoolahan Rolls Back The Years With Wonderful Solo Goal

It is an absolute travesty that Wes Hoolahan doesn't have around 200 Ireland caps to his name.

There have been very few players produced in this country over the last couple of decades that could match his technical ability, something that the Irish side has so long been calling out for. Unfortunately for him and our supporters, the team was managed by a succession of coaches who didn't exactly put a premium on that area of the game.

Hoolahan would end up with 43 international appearances, and while he did have some big moments in a green jersey, we still feel like he could have offered so much more.

Judging by this goal, he probably still could bring plenty to the table.

Now 38-years old, Wes has been plying his trade in League Two this season with Cambridge United. He has experienced plenty of success too, with the club in a fantastic position in the race for promotion and the Irishman having winning League Two Player of the Month for January.

He entered today's game against Forest Green with four goals and five assists to his name in the campaign, but it wouldn't take him long to add to that tally.

The former Norwich City playmaker rolled back the years with a wonderful solo goal, showing some fantastic footwork to turn a couple of defenders before producing a brilliant finish into the far corner.

Sit back and enjoy this one:

What a baller.

Look, we know he's 38-years old, but surely he's worth the last ten minutes against Serbia?

Stephen Kenny, if you're reading this, please do the right thing and give us one last bit of Wes. It's the least we deserve after the 12 months we've had.
