Video: Irish striker scores 25 yard screamer

A great effort from Aberdeen's Adam Rooney

Robert Redmond

It’s been a really good season for Irish strikers this year.

Although Shane Long hasn’t set the world alight since moving to Southampton, and Kevin Doyle continues to struggle, away from the more established internationals, some Irish lads are having a good year.

Daryl Murphy is the top goalscorer in the Championship, with 18 goals for Ipswich Town, Eoin Doyle has the same amount for Chesterfield in League One and Adam Rooney scored his 20th goal of the season for Aberdeen last night. And it was a cracker.

The Dubliner controlled a long pass before smashing a volley in from 25 yards, catching the goalkeeper off-guard and rescuing a point for his side.

The competition is strong for forward places in Martin O’Neill’s next squad.
