Watch the wonder-strike winner from Cork City's Champions League clash

Turner's Cross was sold-out for last night's return of Champions League football to Cork, so you may have missed the stunning winner.

The game wasn't on TV as it clashed with the World Cup semi-final but was streamed live online.

Alas, the thunderous winner to match the big occasion came from the away side.

Legia Warsaw's Michal Kucharczyk was the Polish hero in the 78th minute, running onto a short free-kick and curling a wonder-strike from 30 yards into the top corner.

The away contingent among the 5,795 crowd took their tops off to celebrate, as Legia take a 1-0 lead into next Tuesday's second leg.
