On This Day: Paolo Di Canio fires in from distance to see off Middlesbrough


Taking a look back at a classic West Ham United moment on this day in history, in association with RoadX Tyres...

Middlesbrough had no answer to Paolo Di Canio's long-range strike as West Ham United made it four Premier League wins on the spin with a 1-0 victory on this day in 2000.

The enigmatic Italian took the ball on the left flank after good work from Frank Lampard in the midfield. Di Canio then burst inside a Boro defender and unleashed a driven effort that flew inside Mark Schwarzer's near post.

You can relive the action above!
