With Dundalk trailing 1-0 against Shamrock, the team pushed up for the set piece and the ball was floated in perfectly to pick out the run of Flores. 

The midfielder hooks his left leg up to head height and smashes the ball so hard into the top corner that the net almost comes off.

Flores wheels away and raises his hands to his ears after the belting shot, with his team-mates swamping him and the fans sent into raptures.

Sadly for the 24-year-old, his famous goal wasn’t enough to steer Dundalk to victory, as they went on to lose 3-2 late on despite taking a 2-1 lead. It sees Shamrock increase their advantage at the top of the table to three points.
