20 January 2014

City midfielder Franck Moussa's stunning strike at Preston sparks mass praise on social media

Coventry City striker Franck Moussa added yet another world class strike to his growing 'worldy' collection this season with his late-game-levelling goal at Preston on Saturday.

The Belgian playmaker made it 12 goals for the season with his 30-yard half volley at Deepdale which rescued a point for City with a 1-1 draw deep into added time.


The manner of the 24-year-old's strike though sparked mass applause and adoration on social media.

He also picked up the Sky Sports Goal of the Day accolade and has a comfortable lead in their Goal of the Week vote.

Here's some snippet's we've collated that heap praise on Franck's weekend thunderbolt which you can watch again below!

Poor Arsene Wenger trying to think ways to stop Franck Moussa on Friday #PUSB 

Franck Moussa is collecting a scrapbook of worldies at Coventry this season.
Back in October the Sky Blues’ 24-year-old midfielder grabbed the limelight for an exquisite chip against Leyton Orient in League One, and Moussa added another golazo to his collection on Saturday against Preston.
Preston took the lead in their league match through Kevin Davies, but the veteran striker was shown a straight red card shortly before the 90 minutes were up.
Then, in the 7th minute of injury time at the end of the game, Moussa stepped up with a thunder*******, left-footed half-volley from 25-yards that bulleted into the far top corner of the North End net.
