Stephanie Roche scores another wonder goal

She’s at it again - Ireland's Stephanie Roche scored another beauty of a goal during the week.

This time the Puskas Award nominee scored in an Ireland jersey - playing in the Istria Cup against Costa Rica.

The striker controlled a cross-field pass with her chest before unleashing a powerful volley into the back of the net from more than 20 metres out.

Her fantastic goal helped Ireland to a 2-1 victory.

All in a day’s work for Roche, who was narrowly beaten by James Rodriguez in January to the FIFA Goal of the Year.
