Twitter reacts as Middlesbrough star bags stunner against Sunderland

The Tees-Wear derby between Sunderland and Middlesbrough is well underway after kicking off at 1.30pm.

There’s little love lost between the two clubs and the match has got off to a feisty start with plenty of tackles and individual duels in the opening stages.

But in good news for Boro fans, their side has taken the lead at the Stadium of Light – courtesy of forward Cristhian Stuani, who was a part of the Riverside outfit’s successful promotion bid last season.

The 29-year-old then unleashed an absolute worldie, leaving Sunderland goalkeeper Vito Mannone helpless as the ball jetted into the top corner of his net.

And the goal – arguably the best of the weekend so far – has understandably got everybody talking on social media. Here are some of the best responses from Twitter:
