Oh my word. Jordan Flores with a ridiculous equaliser. Scholes like volley for a corner. He's running his own goal of the season competition.

"This is some Jackie Chan sh*t," one social media user.
A second tweeted: "It's not even a contender. That's it. That's the goal of the season."
A third added: "Needs to be seen in real time! I watched it first in slow mo and thought it was alright, but you really get the power in real time."
The 24-year-old has pretty much wrapped up the League of Ireland Premier Division goal of the season and he'll also be in the running for the coveted FIFA Puskas Award at The Best awards.
Should he win it? Let us know what you think.
