‘Puskas, surely’ – Derby County fans awestruck by Mason Bennett’s potential goal of the season

Mason Bennett scored a wonder goal last night.

Mason Bennett scored a goal that will live long in the memory to help Derby County get their play-off bid back on track.

Derby moved level on points with sixth-place Bristol City after coming from behind to secure a 2-1 win over relegation-battling Wigan Athletic.

And that was largely thanks to a wonder goal from Bennett which got them level in the second half.

Just after the hour mark, the 22-year-old attacker somehow contorted his body to score a volleyed back-heel.

The cross was sent in from the left-hand side and it was behind Bennett so he needed to improvise to get to the ball.

And the end results had shades of the Olivier Giroud scorpion kick as it floated over the goalkeeper and into the top corner.

It was only Bennett’s second goal of the season and his eighth career goal in over 100 games but it was one that he will never forget.

Derby fans flocked to social media to discuss this potential goal of the season candidate from an unlikely source.

Here are what Rams supporters have been saying about this Bennett wonder strike.
