Watch: Morris Blasts Home 40+ Yard Rocket As Cork Survive Bohs Comeback

Ian Morris strike

Ian Morris scored one of the goals of the season as Bohemians fell to a 2-1 defeat to Cork City at Turners Cross in the semi-final replay of the FAI Cup. 

Cork brought the tie to a replay last week when they converted a controversial penalty at Dalymount Park. The 2017 champions were a different prospect at home as they raced into a 2-0 lead thanks to two first-half goals from Graham Cummins and Karl Sheppard.

However, Bohs mounted a comeback in the second half and it all began with a wonder strike from Ian Morris. As City were under pressure, they cleared the ball downfield only for Morris to pick up possession in his own half.

He strode forward with intent and then unleashed an unstoppable strike from over 40 yards which crashed in off the crossbar.

The ball actually bounced back out from behind the line and it took a couple of seconds for the officials to award the goal.

Check it out below, you will hardly see a better strike than this.
