Drone footage captures a stunning free kick scored in East Cork

Photographer James McCarthy used his drone to get footage of an incredible free kick scored over the weekend, writes Steve Neville.

The goal was one of five scored by Valley Rangers player Mikkel Holmgaard, in the West Waterford East Cork League.

Holmgaard has previously played in third tier football in Denmark, so he's pretty handy. The goal itself is impressive but it's made look spectacular thanks to the angle of the drone footage.

The video also shows two more quality goals scored by Rangers in the 9-1 victory over Mogeely FC.

If Messi scored goals like that, we'd be talking about it for weeks!
