It was FA Cup third round time last weekend and the best domestic cup competition didn’t fail to deliver a great few days of football.
We saw giant-killings at Stevenage, rivalries continued at Old Trafford and some fantastic goals up and down the country.
As debatable as it may be given some of the tremendous strikes from the likes of Matt Derbyshire for Birmingham and Piero Mingoia’s drive on his debut for Watford, my goal of the week comes from Bramall Lane. Sheffield United’s visitors were Premier League outfit Aston Villa and there was every chance of an upset. Gerard Houllier’s men ran out 3-1 winners in part to a fabulous solo goal from ex-Blade, Kyle Walker. The young full back opened the scoring inside 10 minutes after dribbling from his own half, past a defender and slotting the ball beyond the helpless goalkeeper.
There was little celebration from the self-confessed Sheffield United fan but the goal still deserves plenty of credit. Walker will have definitely impressed and it won’t be long until we see him making the Tottenham and possibly England right back spot his own.
