Watch this Championship player do a Messi to score on a beautiful solo run
Cardiff beat Preston 2-0 in the EFL Championship, but it was Kenneth Zohore who snatched all the headlines with his powerful solo run and delicate finish to sew up all three points early on in the match.
The ball’s played into his feet in his own half, and, with no support around him, he decides to go on his own.
The 23-year-old Dane turns, takes on three defenders, and powers through into the Preston half. From there, he skips past his markers, sprints into the clear, and he’s one-on-one with the keeper. Unfazed by the pressure from the defenders behind him and completely unbothered by the onrushing goalkeeper, he coolly dinks it over him and wheels off to celebrate one of the goals of the season.
Even Messi himself would be proud.
