Arsenal's Conor Henderson's 35m Thumper: The Only Goal You Need to See This Week

A wonder-goal from Arsenal's Conor Henderson was the highlight of Ireland's U-21's 4-2 victory over the Azzuri in Italy.

The Arsenal midfielder picked up the ball just inside the Italian half before moving menacingly towards the goal as the Italian defenders backed off. Then, from almost 35m, the youngster let fly with an absolute belter of a shot that almost tore the back of the net from the goal.

It was truly a goal of world class quality and one that brings misty eyed memories of this goal from Arie Haan in 1978, which, coincidentally, was also against Italy.

Read on to see the goal for yourself. You won't be disappointed.
