Video: Seven-year-old's wonder goal for Crumlin United has gone worldwide

Harry Clarke

Earlier this week we brought you an absolute gem of a goal by seven-year-old Crumlin United player Sean McDonnell.

The Dublin schoolboy player flicked the ball up with his right foot before lofting a sublime lob over the goalkeeper and all this following a skick Crumlin United move.

McDonnell's effort went viral and his endeavours have not gone unnoticed across the Atlantic with LA Galaxy - home of former Crumlin United legend Robbie Keane - hailing the youngster while suggesting he should add a Robbie Keane cartwheel to the mix.

"Seven-year-old scores brilliant goal that would make Robbie Keane proud," tweeted LA Galaxy to their near 300k fans this evening.
