It’s probably 'one of the best goals I’ve seen live' - West Brom defender Furlong on Thomas-Asante's strike

Published on: 13 November 2022

West Brom defender Darnell Furlong has hailed English-born Ghanaian forward Brandon Thomas-Asante for scoring one of the best goals in the world in their 2-0 win over Stoke City on Saturday.

The 23-year-old put up an impressive display to help the Baggies cruise to a comfortable victory and climb out of the relegation zone and into 21st place in the table, above Wigan on goal difference at The Hawthorns.

Bartley opened the scoring for West Brom in the 39th minute before Thomas-Asante sealed the win for Albion with a spectacular overhead kick to earn Carlos Corberan's side all three points.

“In terms of Brandon’s goal, I was thinking what on earth is he doing," he told WBA TV.

“To pull that off, over the top of the keeper and into the top corner is unbelievable. I’m delighted for him. It’s probably one of the best goals I’ve seen live.

Thomas-Asante has scored three goals in 12 appearances in the English Championship for West Brom Albion.
