Non-league wondergoal ‘BETTER than Gazza’s volley against Scotland at Euro 96’, says Ally McCoist

27 Mar

Ally McCoist believes a non-league wondergoal that became a viral hit may be better than Paul Gascoigne’s legendary volley against Scotland at Euro 1996!

Bromsgrove Sporting FC striker Jason Cowley became an internet sensation when a clip of his stunning goal against Corby Town was posted online last weekend.

Gazza’s goal against Scotland – and his celebration – is one of the most iconic in England’s football history

His wonderful strike quickly drew comparisons with Gazza’s famous goal for England – which you can watch here, because why not? – as he flicked the ball over a defender’s head before slotting a perfectly-executed volley into the left corner.

McCoist, who was in a mischievous mood on Wednesday’s Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT, came on as a substitute in that memorable game at the old Wembley.

And he poked fun at his old Rangers team-mate, and sensationally claimed the non-league star’s strike may well be better than Gazza’s.


McCoist: “I’m telling you, I reckon it might just have been better than Gascoigne’s against Scotland in ’96.”

Seaman: “No chance! It can’t possibly be!”


McCoist’s tongue was firmly in his cheek, though, as he later admitted Gazza’s strike was ‘one of the THE great goals’ in world football history.
