Days after beating Premier League side Newcastle in the Carabao Cup quarterfinals, Brentford moved into fourth in the EFL Championship with a 3-2 win over Cardiff City on Saturday. Sergi Canós scored a hat trick for the Bees, but we won’t be showing you any of those goals. No, we’re here to talk about that Will Vaulks Goal from his own half.
Vaulks, one of just a handful of Welsh players on the Welsh side, scored a brace for Cardiff City. His opener in the fourth minute of first-half stoppage time was one that will long be remembered in Wales.
Will Vaulks Goal From His Own Half vs. Brentford
With Cardiff City pinned down in its own half and Brentford keeper David Raya well off his line, Vaulks launched a first-time, 60-yard bomb that landed perfectly on the goal line for one of the most stunning strikes you’ll see in Britain this year.

Merry Christmas and a happy New Year — what a hit.
To simultaneously spot Raya off his line and hit the ball first time is no simple task, and Vaulks struck it just perfectly.
Unfortunately for Vaulks and Cardiff, Canós and Brentford stormed back in the second half to take all three points. But what a gift of a goal.
