Pádraig Amond celebrates his goal
Carlow native Pádraig Amond scored a cracker of a first-time finish off a corner - in a move which was straight from the training ground - as Newport County stunned Middlesbrough 2-0 in the FA Cup on Tuesday night.
Amond's goal on 67 minutes doubled the League Two side’s advantage after Robbie Willmott had opened the scoring shortly after half-time.
Newport County - who have already knocked Premier League side Leicester City out of the FA Cup after Amond converted the winning penalty - will now face Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City in the competition’s fifth round.
It's such a big deal, Gary Lineker has even been tweeting about the Carlow man.
