Simon Cox scores incredible chip volley for Nottingham Forest
When Nottingham Forest rallied from two goals down to draw with Birmingham at the City Ground, fans were understandably pleased with their team. But much of their praise would be reserved for new signing Simon Cox, who got the Reds back into the game with a goal that Dennis Bergkamp would be proud of.
After a long through ball was sent over the top by Lewis McGugan, Ireland international Cox took down the ball in one movement, and whilst the ball was still in the air he lobbed it over England international Jack Butland.
Cox received praise from the great and the good in the game over the goal, and Rio Ferdinand, who tweeted:
Wow…i seen the goal of the season already..Simon Cox of Nottingham Forest took a ball out the sky, 2 keepy uppys and dispatched it nicely!
