Preston North End's Joe Garner Scores Goal Of The Season

A jaw-dropping chest, flick and volley equals anything from the Premier League

It had shades of everyone from David Ginola to Dennis Bergkamp to Alan Shearer.

Joe Garner, the Preston North End striker, scored a goal as good as anything those three ever produced.

The fantasy shot, which earned his boyhood club a 1-1 draw in the first leg of the play-off semi-final, was described as “goal of the century” by Rotherham manager Steve Evans.

The 26-year-old started his career at Blackburn Rovers, before loan spells at Carlisle as well as spells at Nottingham Forest and Watford. 

He may not have played in the Premier League yet, but there isn't a footballer in the world who wouldn't be proud of this one.
