His team may have been on the wrong end of a five-goal thriller, but Jordan Flores grabbed the attention of the world with his wonder-strike in Dundalk's 3-2 defeat to Shamrock Rovers.

The midfielder not only scored what is likely to be the goal of the season in the SSE Airtricity Division, but put himself in the running for the FIFA Puskas award with his equaliser for Dundalk in Tallaght.

With his side trailing 1-0 midway through the first half, Flores produced a moment of magic, running onto a cross from a corner and somehow getting his foot up over his head to volley and unstoppable shot past Alan Mannus in the Rovers goal. 

Flores not only became the number one trending topic on twitter in Ireland but attracted attention from all over the world, with the video already breaking through 1,000,000 views.

The official FIFA account tweeted the stunning strike, asking whether the goal is "a potential candidate for the #Puskas Award?"

Meanwhile Spanish sports daily AS claimed that "The 2020 Puskas Award has just been 'won' by Dundalk's Jordan Flores."

The Puskas award is given to the scorer of the best goal each year at FIFA's 'The Best' award ceremony.
