Snapshot: Trundle's special goal

The ball arrows towards the far corner of the net after Lee Trundle, one of Swansea City's finest ever players, had marked a big occasion with the sweetest of volleys.

The 2005-06 Football League Trophy final was not yet three minutes old when Leon Britton collected the ball on the right flank and floated a cross towards Trundle in the penalty area.

Carlisle United, the Swans' opponents that day, could have been forgiven for thinking there was not too much immediate threat to their goal given that this was barely half a chance for Trundle.

But the Swans' talismanic striker had other ideas.

Trundle controlled Britton's centre on his chest before rifling the ball across keeper Keiren Westwood and inside his left-hand post.

It was a glorious strike, and one which set Kenny Jackett's Swans side on the path to a 2-1 victory at the Millennium Stadium.

Trundle rates the goal as the best of his career, which is praise indeed given his back catalogue of spectacular strikes.
