(Video) Watch identical Diogo Jota Merseyside Derby goal scored in Ireland’s SSE Airtricity League

Posted by

Diogo Jota scored a memorable derby goal as his Cruyff-turn preceded a left-footed bullet into the back of the Goodison Park net.

The goal, assisted by Andy Robertson, was not just an unbelievable finish but assured the game was over for Everton.

In case you need any reminders of the moment of brilliance, the club have thankfully shared the goal on Twitter:

One eagle-eyed fan on Twitter has spotted similarities between this and a goal by Sam Stanton for Dundalk in September.

In what is an unbelievable shout by @PartedBeard (who gives credit to @RoySmith), the goal is undoubtedly very similar.

The Scottish forward also produces a brilliant turn, followed by a left-footed pile driver which is certainly worth a watch.
