“He always, always, always used to be off his line. He’s constantly off his line and he’s a really small goalkeeper as well.

“I just picked the ball up, got my head down and done the two geezers and just thought ‘I’ll have a go’ and just see what happens. I’ve caught it an absolute beaut and it’s just sailed straight over him and in.”

The sensational strike hit the headlines after going viral on social media.

Speaking afterwards, Berko coach Tommy Gtarratt said: “People forget that at our level we have these little playing gems – every now and again they’ll produce something we’d all be happy to pay money to see down at Vicarage Road.
