Joe Cole scores outrageous goal as Premier League All Stars take on Sunday League team

Joe Cole scores an outrageous goal as a team consisting of Premier League All Stars take on a Sunday League club for a charity match.

The 42 year old demonstrated that age is just a number when he netted while playing alongside a team of Premier League All Stars in a charity match for a Sunday league.

The former Chelsea player participated in the game to raise funds for the Essex and Herts Air Ambulance Fund.

Despite the charitable nature of the match against SE Dons, Cole didn’t hold back against his opponents with a video uploaded onto social media showing him expertly controlling a high ball with his chest and then elegantly chipping the goalkeeper with a volley from the top of his boot.

Wearing the No 10 jersey that he was known for throughout his career, he left everyone in the stadium stunned.

It gave fans a flashback to when in 2006 when in the FIFA World Cup, he opened the scoring for England in the 34th minute after a headed clearance from a Sweden defender bounced out to him, chested the ball and lashed it on the volley.

His shot dipped into the top right corner of the goal, and sent England fans wild.

Joe Cole’s stunner ended up being cancelled out at the start of the second half after a corner found the head of Sweden centre-back Marcus Allback.

Gerrard then got 86th-minute strike which at the time look to have won the game for England, but Sweden’s star man Henrik Larsson found a last-gasp equaliser to level the match.

 

The game took place at Bishop’s Stortford on Sunday the 5th of May with footage from it finally being released for all to see.

Joe Cole was joined by fellow ex-professionals including Darren Bent, David Bentley, Troy Deeney, Wayne Routledge, Tom Huddlestone, Sandro, Paul Konchesky, Jamie O’Hara and Jack Wilshere, while the likes of Rod Stewart and Ray Winstone watched on from the stands.
