Did he mean it? Almost certainly not. But a long range striker from teenager Luke Strebel sent his school into raptures.

The goal came in 'overtime' (can you tell we are in the States?) of the TSSAA Division II-AA Boys Soccer Championship between Father Ryan and Montgomery Bell Academy.

Strebel's goal saw his team win the match 2-1 just before it was due to go to penalties.

"I wasn’t even expecting it" Strebel told the Tennessean.

"I just kind of served it in, hoping my guys get a head on it like they always do, and just put it right in. I still don't know how it happened. I'm in shock."
