Patrick Bamford has just scored of the FA Cup's all-time great goals, it's a thing of beauty

Patrick Bamford has just scored of the FA Cup's all-time great goals, it's a thing of beauty

Leeds United striker Patrick Bamford netted an outrageous effort in their FA Cup third round clash against Peterborough on Sunday.

Leeds United striker Patrick Bamford netted one of the all-time great FA Cup goals during Sunday afternoon's third round clash against Peterborough – and we can't stop watching.

The 30-year-old, who has struggled in front of goal for Daniel Farke's side this season, doubled Leeds' lead against League One outfit Peterborough in remarkable fashion.

With 47 minutes on the clock at London Road, former Chelsea man Bamford brought down a long ball with his chest before volleying home with a thunderous left-footed strike.

Posh goalkeeper Fynn Talley was helpless between the sticks. "He couldn't have made a better contact with that," the commentator said as the away side went 2-0 ahead.

Ethan Ampadu opened the scoring for Leeds shortly after the half hour mark but Bamford's outrageous effort will almost certainly steal the headlines.

It has been a memorable week for the former Middlesbrough forward, who scored his first goal for 31 months when Leeds secured an emphatic 3-0 win over Birmingham on New Year’s Day.

Bamford, who has been linked with a move away from Elland Road of late, has struggled with injuries in recent years.

"I'm really happy and delighted for Patrick because he had such a difficult time," said manager Daniel Farke said after the victory against Birmingham.

"We don't have to speak about two difficult years in total, but also this season. With his age and with his injuries [history], we needed definitely a bit longer [for him] to be back in his normal shape."

Farke continued: "He was also a bit unlucky because strikers need goals for [their] confidence, he didn't score off his many substitutions [appearances] and there was a period when he lost also a bit believing in his confidence.

"We need him in his best shape and we need him also in his confidence and in his rhythm. [It's] a pretty important day today for Patrick and also for our whole group, because we definitely need a player like him in his best shape."
