- Updated: March 24, 2013
We have heard plenty about this goal since it left Fabrice Fokobo’s foot on Wednesday night, only now has it reached YouTube.
Sporting Lisbon and Spurs played out an epic NextGen Series match last week with the Portuguese side emerging as winners thanks to a 5-3 victory after extra-time.
Two highly rated young sides played some excellent football, according to reports, and Sporting appeared to have the match sown up with a 3-1 lead over Tottenham with 10 minutes to go.
Spurs hit back with their equaliser coming in the 95th minute to send the match to extra time.
This is where Sporting Lisbon retook control, scoring one of the finest goals you will see this season along the way.
Luka Stojanovic made it 4-3 before Fabrice Fokobo let fly with a 45-yard stunner that flew into the back of the net, giving Spurs keeper Lawrence Vigouroux no chance.
Fabrice Fokobo is a defensive midfielder who can also play in defence and one of the latest young talents from the Sporting Lisbon production line. The 19-year-old made his first team debut earlier this month against Porto.
