Sheff Weds ace scores ‘greatest offside goal ever’ and has celebration to match

Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Will Vaulks saw one of the best-ever Wembley goals disallowed for offside after an acrobatic celebration.

Wednesday thought they had found the opening goal of the League One play-off final after Vaulks slammed the ball home from 20 yards out in the second-half of extra time.

A goal-shy but entertaining clash at Wembley between Barnsley and local rivals Sheffield Wednesday was won in stoppage time by Josh Windass, but the Owls thought they’d won the game earlier through a wonder strike.

Jack Hunt was played into space on the right hand side for Wednesday in the 107th minute before cutting back to Vaulks, who was arriving on the edge of the box.

Have you seen a better disallowed goal than Vaulk’s strike? Let us know in the comment section.

The 29-year-old opened up his foot and curled home an unerring strike into Harry Isted’s near post as it seemed that Darren Moore’s side had finally made the breakthrough.

But the linesman’s flag was raised during the celebrations which saw Vaulks somersault his way towards the Wednesday bench.

Replays showed that Hunt had strayed offside in the build-up but the linesman’s flag wasn’t raised due to VAR being in action.

The chaos led to unrivalled celebrations from Vaulks and the bench that would have left them red faced in the aftermath.

Sky Sports dubbed it the “greatest disallowed goal ever,” with one comment saying: “Some goals should just be allowed to stand no matter what. That Will Vaulks strike is one of them.”

A second read: “Don’t think anyone’s more embarrassed than Will Vaulks right now!”

Another tweet said: “What a goal that was by Will Vaulks – shame it got called offside.”

Whilst a fourth commented: “Will Vaulks doing backflips for an offside goal hahahahaha!”

Vaulks had the last laugh in the end as Wednesday clinched promotion back to the Championship via a last gasp Windass winner from the last kick of the final.
