Football fans have heaped praise on Ipswich Town forward Wes Burns for scoring an incredible goal against Coventry City.
The winger picked the ball up on the right wing after a classy switch before beating his man and hitting an outside foot shot past the helpless Bradley Collins in net.
Burns’ strike sent Portman Road wild as he and his team-mates ran off to celebrate the goal that put them 2-0 up just before half-time.
The strike ended up being the deciding goal, with Brandon Williams scoring an unfortunate own goal in the 96th minute as the clash ended 2-1.
With Ipswich sitting second in the Championship, fans have praised their style of play this season but all they could talk about after the match was that strike from Burns.

Taking to X, an Ipswich Town supporter suggested that Burns’ strike will go down as the best in the club’s history.
He said: ‘Perhaps the best goal I’ve ever seen Ipswich Town score…. Absolutely incredible!!’
Another fan went one step further as he dubbed the goal as ‘quite possibly one of the best ever scored in the Championship’, and it’s hard to argue with that statement.
It was clear that the world of football was impressed with the goal as Mail Sport’s Dominic King compared the strike with that of Alejandro Garnacho’s against Everton recently.
‘There was plenty of chatter last week about the best goal you will ever see etc…
‘As good as the Garnacho overhead kick was, this is what football is all about,’ he said regarding Burns’ finish.
Kieran McKenna’s Ipswich are on course to achieve back-to-back promotions and find themselves in the Premier League next season.
And one X user believes that Burns’ strike was already of Premier League standard.
Even EA Sports have been urged to take inspiration from Burns’ strike as EAFC24 players are calling for an in-form card of Burns.
‘6pm Wednesday, I expect to see an 83 Wes Burns IF with Trivela playstyle +’, said one fan who wants to use the card in his Ultimate Team.
Another compared him with Portugal cult hero Quaresma, who was no stranger to an outside of the foot finish.
‘Quaresma is that you?’ they asked.
A final Ipswich supporter credited McKenna and his side for the football they are playing.
They called Burns’ strike ‘utter madness’ as he suggested that the Tractor Boys are producing fine goals every week.
‘Fans from other teams think we’re lucky etc and we’re producing goals like this every week,’ he wrote.
