Video: UCD’s Robbie Benson with a sensational goal at the Brandywell
UCD player Robbie Benson scored a goal last night that Gareth Bale would have been proud against Derry City last night.
The Airtricity League has seen a number of Goal of the Season contenders already at this early stage, but Benson will be in the final shake up with a blistering run and finish reminiscent of the Real Madrid star.
Playing a one-two in his own half, Benson surged through the middle, leaving the home side trailing in his wake before adding a quality finish to cap off a stunning individual move.
The students hared the spoils in Derry, but the goal will live long in the memory.
