Ghanaian midfielder Hiram Boateng produced a sensational carbon copy of Diego Maradona’ s goal of the century for Crystal Palace as they were beaten 4-2 by Colchester.

The Eagles midfielder stole the limelight with a brilliant individual moment which has got world football talking.

Receiving the ball in his own half, the 19-year-old stepped and pirouetted to sneak past five Colchester players as if they didn’t exist to hit the back of the net.

The Ghanaian youngster showed great balance and strength as he drove towards the penalty area and scored Maradona-esq goal for Crystal Palace U21s.

His fabulous solo goal is reminiscent of Diego Maradona’s goal of the century for Argentina as they beat England 2-0 in the 1986 World Cup.
