Glenavon's Cooper chips Cantonaesque goal

Glenavon's Joel Cooper chips a glorious goal reminiscent of Eric Cantona's famous Manchester United strike against Sunderland in 1996.

Cooper's beat two challenges and looked up before lofting impudently over Glentoran keeper Dwayne Nelson.

The goal put Glenavon 2-1 ahead but a late Stephen Gordon goal helped Glentoran snatch a 2-2 draw at the Oval.

Ballyclare man Cooper, 20, is a Northern Ireland Under-21 international and was linked with Bristol City during the summer.
