Brek Shea showed last Friday why he was such a hot commodity last January for Stoke City.
In a mid-season friendly match at Republic of Ireland club Dundalk, Shea scored one of his on-loan club Barnsley’s four goals in a 4-1 victory. Shea intelligently dribbled away from two defenders with a Cruyff turn and a quick change of pace before playing a nice one-two pass with a teammate and slotting home.
While the opposition there was clearly not as high as the level of defending Shea would see at the English Premier League or even Championship level, it’s a good sign to see that the 23-year-old is still confident enough to pull off that move.
Up next for Shea and the last-placed Barnsley is a home match on Tuesday against Blackburn.
Here’s a video of Shea’s goal:
