Jon Walters receiving plaudits for cracking goal against Liverpool

An incredible finish from the towering striker.

Republic of Ireland striker Jonathan Walters opened the scoring for Stoke City in their Premier League clash against Livepool at Anfield on Tuesday.

The goal came in the 12th minute of the game as Liverpool had enjoyed the majority of possession in the opening moments.

Erik Pieters picked up the ball on the left hand side before putting in an inviting cross to the near post.

Walters then evaded Dejan Lovren and was able to get to the ball first before connecting with an excellent header which Simon Mignolet could do nothing about.

Liverpool v Stoke City - Premier League

As if opening the scoring for his side wasn't good enough, this was only Stoke's third league goal at Anfield in 40 years.

The reaction was glowing for the Irishman.

And people enjoyed his celebration too.
