On This Day: Andy Carroll's majestic scissor kick against Palace

 

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

"I had done one of those in training last week and it hit the post, so I have been practising," Andy Carroll had revealed in his post-match interview.

On this day in 2017, Andy Carroll's practice made perfect.

The then-28-year-old scored one of West Ham United's all-time finest goals - and arguably the greatest seen yet at London Stadium - with a soaring scissor kick to double the Irons' advantage in an eventual 3-0 win over Crystal Palace.

Second-half strikes from Sofiane Feghouli and Manuel Lanzini came either side of the England striker's wonder-goal - but it was Carroll's acrobatic effort for which the match will live long in the Claret and Blue Army's memories.

Rewatch the goal again above!
