WATCH: UCD goalkeeper recreates last-minute bicycle kick on Soccer AM

UCD U19 goalkeeper Conor Kearns was invited on to Soccer Am on Saturday morning to try and recreate his last-minute bicycle against Cork City last weekend.

With the Students' trailing by a single goal in the final minutes of stoppage time, Kearns promptly joined the attack and scored the last-minute equaliser by finding the back of the net with a perfectly executed bicycle kick.

Kearns sprinted off to the corner flag to celebrate along with his teammates, but the goal quickly made it's way around social media thanks to UCD AFC, who had recorded the strike on their YouTube channel.

Sky Sports football breakfast show Soccer AM soon picked up on the clip and reposted it on their Twitter account, whilst also inviting Kearns out to their studios to see if he could replicate his strike.

Fortunately, the Students goalkeeper was able to rediscover his scoring touch, much to the delight of host John Fendley.
