Match that Messi – goal of the season contender from Irishwoman

IT may only be early October but you’ll be hard pressed to see a better goal scored all season than the one buried by Peamount United’s Stephanie Roche.
The Republic of Ireland international beautifully controls a difficult pass, beats her marker with an impudent flick, and launches a terrifying strike at goal.
Tremendous work from the 24-year-old, and similarly excellent behaviour from Peamount manager Eileen Gleeson for her entirely appropriate celebration.
"I knew it was a good and I thought a few of my friends might say something," she said today. "But I didn't think the likes of Gary Lineker and Piers Morgan would be retweeting it."
